DIY Pipe Lamp

It was time to replace the lamp on my nightstand. So I made one. Although it has a switch hidden on the bulb socket, I plug it into a touch switch module; I can touch the pipe base anywhere to control the light.

I think it looks a little better than the PVC pipe lamp I made some years ago.

What do you think?

    I printed out this photo and gave it to my son. It took him a few minutes to make the connection with the box of pipes I put together for him. Then he got a BIG smile and got a very knowing look on his face.

    Awesome! Making things is fun. With a lamp kit from your local hardware store and a drill (and maybe a little help), he can finish the job.

    Now show him the KARKA industrial chic floor lamp and point out its price. He’ll probably want to go into business making these things. ;-)
