I figured for my first instructable I'd do something that a ton of others have done. After seeing these around on Instructables as well as elsewhere on the net (sometimes upwards of $300!) I decided that I would finally build my own. With a couple of common tools and a spare afternoon, you can have one for around $35. Admittedly, some of the awesome switches/toggles that others like the Kozo Lamps
have are very cool, but something more complicated that I didn't end up trying. Anyways, I'm sure that there is an easy way to rig up some of the great plumbing fixture switches out there if you've got the will to do it.
You will need:
-Assorted plumbing parts (I used 3x 3/4" T-joints, 2x 6 inch lengths of 3/4", 6x 3/4" 90 angle pieces, one 3/4" to 1 1/2" bell reducer, and 4x 3 inch lengths of 3/4")
-Drill (dremel could probably work in a squeeze)
-Standard lightblub socket
-A cool lightbulb (I got a full spectrum 60 watt round bulb)
