Ive been wanting to make a lamp for a while now, as nothing in the shops appeals to me, its all too shiny and plastic looking. So after a little scavenging at the dump, I found a few things that kind of look lamp like, so I Frankensteined this together.  It works well and changes the whole mood of the room when turned on

Step 1: Stuff you will need

I found a beat up telescope and an old horn speaker at the dump. After pulling it out of the mud I was able to take it home at no charge, I also found an old pressure cleaner on a previous trip and I cut the cord off it and took home the high pressure hose.
