I need to lampshade this trope. No, seriously, lampshade.

I want to make a jute lampshade, or rather, several trapezoidal pieces of jute stretched over wood frames that will act like a lampshade. I know almost nothing about jute, or lampshades, but plenty about wood. [more inside]

Where can I find a replacement for a discontinued Ikea lampshade?

[LampshadeFilter]: I accidentally broke a beloved glass Ikea lampshade and I'd like to find a replacement. I was a klutz this morning and broke this lampshade that holds high sentimental value to its owner. It is a medium-blue glass, mushroom shaped lampshade bought around 2002. Ikea doesn't have a stock discontinued items, and eBay and Googling turn up nothing. Pictures are inside. [more inside]
