"Parasitic" tripod floor lamp

"Parasitic" tripod floor lampI was mesmerized by the Park house in the 2019 movie Parasite, and one bit of furnishing that particularly caught my eye was a tripod lamp in the living room scenes. I really liked the moody, atmospheric light that it gave off. With some research, I found that the lamp was built by the Korean artist/carpenter Bahk Jong Sun, and I found enough images of one online to allow me to design something close.Here's the lamp in a still from the movie:
And here is my SketchUp model with a spoiler tribute to the movie:
While the original was wood and brass, my version is all wood, a combination of cherry, Alaska yellow cedar, and Gaboon ebony. Took me about a month and a half to complete.The light box has 4 louvers that can be swiveled independently to shape the light. The turret allows the light box to be rotated. I don't know what type of light source was used in the original, but I used a series of LED strips with a dimmable transformer, all hidden behind a milky acrylic panel diffuser.This was an interesting project because there was very little joinery and very few requirements for precision. This was both freeing and maddening. None of the legs match and none of the louvers match. But the nice thing was that it doesn't matter. They're close enough.For a deep dive, I've captured the full build in some blog posts.I'm still working out just where the lamp will go, presumably it will be somewhere in the living room.

Dining room buffet

Dining room buffetBuilt this out of quarter sawn oak shaker style. I enjoy building projects for family. I was at a wedding and saw family I hadn't seen for some time and one of my cousins was saying how they had bought 3 or 4 buffets but were disappointed because they were not built properly. Had to build them one so people know IKEA is not the only choice.
