He's 15 now but I have a feeling we might iterate over his requirements a couple of times. When I asked him what he wanted he had trouble articulating anything. Eventually we got to it being thick walled, short and bottom heavy so it is hard to tip over. If that isn't what he actually wants he'll have to give me better requirements.If he's young you might want to thin down the lip to fit his lips.
Wow! I never heard of these before. I googled the kumiko lamps to see what they look like. I would like to make a set of these for my bedroom night stands. Please post pictures when you are done putting these together. Thanks!
