Steampunk Desk Lamp


OK, so it’s one part wood turning and one part crafting and not to everyone’s taste but I really dig the outcome.
Light on my desk. I need to make some space for it...

I bought some cool Edison style light bulbs a while back and just thought I needed to try this industrial thing. My office is very modern and it works for me.

I wanted it to look like someone was locked in a basement with a bunch of junk and needed light, so they cobbled together whatever they could and came up with this. In all truth it’s kind of what happened!

I raided my shed and found a bunch of electrical and plumbing parts that I mashed into useless gears and buttons. I already want to build another one, maybe a bit more refined this time…
