I think its a great lamp , you should give it a bash in acrylic.. could be less visually disturbing than the chequers and zig zags of the burnt wood?

I agree on the checkering. Rolling the edge on a belt sander softens the color of the blocks,
and then a medium color finish would soften the whole look. (Orange/garnet shellac?)
Nice job!

The same folks who sold you boxit now have another macro suite called flexit that will integrate with what you have and let you do conical shapes-- boxit alone will give you curved sides or four sloped sides, but not curved, sloped sides. That feature can make the joints visually "tamer" without further post-processing in the wood shop-- appeased my wife, anyhow :-) Take a look at their "customer-success-flexit/" photos for an example that was made before they updated the code to include a dovetail joint option-- the example pictured has manually-created dovetails. Kinda takes the 'living hinge' to a different level.
