make the shade also out of cherry and mica. It's the angles that have me
confussed. Has anyone seen plans or know the angles for a 4 or 6 sided

Look to the Oct 04 issue of American Woodworker - "Current issue"
Pages 40-50 -'cept they call it a FL Wright 'inspired' Arts and Crafts

The May 2003 issue of Wood Magazine had plans, including a jig to use for
the mica frame for the shade. I built the lamp and shade but don't recall
the angles. I have the plans/magazine somewhere ... if you can't find that
issue on the Internet, post back and I'll look them up for you.
FWIW, there is picture of the one I built on page 2 of my projects journal
on the website below.
Swingman, where did you get the mica from. I have that mag, and was planning
on building that lamp when I get the a&c desk built but was wondering where
you got the mica from. The article shows a different design on the mica and
the hardware kit is about $64.
I believe it was woodworker.com ... but there are a number of places on the
net that sell mica in sheets. Just do a Google on "mica".
That said, the hardware parts kit is worth the price if still available as
the components are of much higher quality than you can generally find
locally in the culture of the BORG.
