Yet another lamp

I had so much fun building my last lamp out of plumbing fixtures that I made another. Also, I needed a bed-side light.

This time I incooperated a light switch - see me installing it here:

And here is the finished product, illuminating the head of my couch/bed:



  1. I like it. Must. Resist. Urge. To. Try. Myself.

    I've already got a 60 light per capita thing going now.

    Of course, my husband is going to make my son a spaceship bed and my father-in-law (one of the most talented electronic designers I know) is going to make him panels of switches, lights and alarms that really work.

    That will have to do.

  2. Ohh, a spaceship bed! That is so awesome -please do post pictures of it once it is finished!

    Hmm, I don't have much room in my flat, but maybe... no, bad Boris. No spaceship-bed for you!

  3. Your new lamp looks like a puppet looking over a ledge. I like it.

  4. Where do you find the 12v transformers?

  5. Thanks Robert!

    @trey: You can get 12V transformers usually at the same place you can get 12V halogen bulbs: hardware and/or lighting stores.
