However over on this side of the Atlantic we don't seem to have easy access to the great range of diy products you do (I think).
Anyway, I've been searching the shelves of several stores and couldn't really find a bulb I thought would look good....
Step 1: The materials
You can just about see the filaments inside the tube. The more the better!
Here is the list of the rest of the materials;
A cheap mains voltage 1 gang dimmer switch,
A brass bayonet mount lamp holder,
A small round knob,
An anlogue 0-250volt meter (mains here in the UK),
An assortment of mdf offcuts, woodglue and screws,
Black car spray paint and clear gloss spray laquer.
The tools i used with differing ammounts of success!
Wide forstner bits,
Small screwdriver for the electrical bits,
Cheap multimeter to kinda test the thing before risking my life to mains power.....
