Nr. 0050 (here alongside nr. 0001) is a versatile lamp made out of five wooden segments. The idea was to make it according to the KISS principle.

Step 1: Woodworking

Picture of Woodworking

1. Cut twelve identical pieces of wood measuring 200x9x28mm.

2. Drill 8mm holes there where the five pieces of wood are combined together to make a joint link.

Step 2: Powercord Assembly

2. Install a switch (optional) and a socket plug.

Step 3: Fixation of the Fitting

1. Do a first assembly of the wooden pieces by use of sawed of pieces of 8mm threaded end and winged nuts.

2. Use tie-raps to fixate the fitting.

3. Drill four 2mm holes.

4. Use a thin metal tread and a aluminium clip to permanently keep things together.

5. Remove the tie-raps.

Important: use a low wattage (LED) light bulb to prevent overheating!

Step 4: The Shade

Make a 'lightshield' with thin triplex plywood to deflect unwanted light. Strengthen the joint by glueing in a toothpick.
