I make my own lamps from concrete and PVC for use in our vacation apartments rentals. I had to buy the lampshades in the past, but I would like to get some ideas for making my own shades out of bamboo or other suitable materials. The tricky part is the metal frame that holdsthe shade on the lamp post.
