For my final project I wanted to make a lamp. I have a long history of building furniture and always want my next project to push the limits of my past knowledge. I decided to do a lamp because I had never worked with A/C voltage, and I am also an avid reader. Recently I have felt that my room needed more flavors of lighting, as softer lighting in a room with more lighting creates a more cozy aesthetic. It was due to all of this that I decided to create an industrial aesthetic lamp. I did not have any specific inspirations when creating the lamp, I knew I wanted and industrial style lamp, so I would be using pipes as the main body, I also knew that I wanted to continue using the reclaimed wood form my farm to maintain the theme of the other furniture, I also knew I wanted an Eddison bulb because of its beautiful design, besides that I wanted the ideas to flow in the moment as that is how my best pieces are created. I unfortunately don’t have any sketches as i tend to go with the flow, I like to look at my materials and imagine the best way for them to come together.

    Hi there,
    I love your lamp and the way you integrated the guitar knob as a dimmer. I really like how the lamp can rotate as well, overall, im very proud of what you have done.

    This turned out so cool! I really like the unique bulb shape and the wood base. I’m curious, where did you find the wood for the base and how did you made it look so smooth and clean?

    Hi Adlai. I am the same way, I like to do things on the fly as well haha. I think that despite not having initial sketches, etc, you managed to create a very pleasing, and aesthetic lamp that I would certainly love to have in my own room! What was the most difficult part in fabricating this? Looking forward to checking this out at expo!
