Picture of RGB LED moodlamp (sitting dog lamp)
"What gift my girlfriend would like to get for her birthday?". This was the main question for several weeks. But then I thought: hmm...what could be more cozy then warm lamp lihgt in late autumn evenings?
That was just an idea but I still needed a design. After spending few hours on the internet I have found really cool lamp - sitting dog lamp. I was really impressed by that simple but very nice design, so I decided to make it. Just one difference: mine had to be RGB mood lamp.

And finally, here is the video!

Step 1: Tools and materials

Before starting any work you need to do a list what you will need. Of course it's almost impossible to write down everything, but most of tools and materials can be easily predicted.

I have made a list where I wrote what you will or might need while making this lamp. You will find it in pdf file.

Step 2: Drawings

The work begins! I have to say, pencil is the best invention ever. Don't make a mistake and don't draw with ballpoint pen. At least while you are not sure about the shape and other details. Later you can make those lines clearer with pen.
So I was thinking how my "sitting dog" should look like. I have searched photos, how real dogs look like when they are sitting. After few sketches I had my sitting dog drawing. Just only thing...that dog had no head

Did it as a christmas gift. I'm not very pleased with the cone shape and didn't had enough time to make a collar but my mum is loves it !
Also I didn't do a rgb led lamp, just a regular lamp.
First time I made something from instructables, thank you for the idea!
