Tabletop Japanese Shoji Lanterns

New versions of the Japanese mini lamps I made a while ago. Frame and dimensions are almost the same, but I have added a USB LED lighting circuit so they can be lit from any laptop, phone charger etc and placed on a desk or any suitable space.
Enjoy watching!

Wood: walnut / basswood for kumiko
Finish: danish oil
Shoji paper and rice glue

    May I ask you a question?
    What is the type and what is the purpose of the white gloves you wear at the end of the assembly?
