Well, all that HGTV watching has eaten my brain. I was watching one of those design shows (Design on a Dime, IIRC) and one of the guys was creating some hanging lamps. It was no more than a couple of knitting hoops wired together and lined with some sort of art paper. While I don’t care for hanging lamps, I did like idea of how the lamp was created.
So, I came up with a design for a table lamp. I went out and bought most of the parts I’ll need. I still have to find some white plexiglass. Locally, all I can find (and it has to be ordered) is 4’ x 8’ sheets costing over $100! :eek:
If I were doing a bunch of the lamps, it would be a good deal, but I’m only going to make one to start.
I Googled around and found smaller sheets that are actually replacement pieces for artist’s light boxes. More expensive per square foot, but more affordable for a small project.
I figure by the time I finish, the lamp will end up costing about $50.
Anybody ever make a lamp?
