object — Wooden Task Lamp

I made this in just a couple of hours.

We needed just a little bit more light on the desk. I made a quick sketch for a lamp I could make at home that would also look fun — if I didn’t screw it up.

I gave myself a budget of about $25, which was enough to pick up a utility lamp; some wood; bolts, washers, and wingnuts; and a spool of trimmer line at the hardware store.

Back home, I made a few cuts, drilled a few holes, and assembled this guy in about an hour. I swapped in a warm light flood bulb, which casts just the right amount and kind of light. The vibe is strong.

If you can, D.I.Y.
