This is a custom made lamp based off of tim-1138's instructable found here. I first made one with three bulbs as a gift, and decided once I found the box this one is using, to make another, and document it.

Those are pretty cool! The drawback to using the bulbs I use is the cost, basically $8 a pop. Share pics when you finish yours!

Very nice design. Where did you find the bulb?

I got most of what I used from Lowes...you can find the bulb here...Fashion Bulb
Nice! I really like that box you used for the base :)

Thanks! I really like it too. I just happened to drop by a shop when I was finishing my Christmas shopping and the sold a lot of different cigar boxes...as soon as I saw this one, I knew I had to buy it.
