Step 5: Extenders

In order to be able to adjust the lamp to a convenient height over the coffee table, 2 1' foot extenders were added. These consist of 2 1' pieces of 3/4" copper pipe and 4 3/4" to 1/2" reducers. At one end the 1/2" is glued in while at the other end the 1/2" pipe slides easily in and out and is secured with 2 #4 brass screws. (You might even find 2 brass thumbscrews at your hardware store)
You got the touch......that's just smooth.

These lamps sure look good but nobody can really appreciate them with the shades on so these energy saver ones do the job.
