Introduction: Steampunk LED Color Mixer Lamp
I decided to make an artist friend of mine a LED lamp that can mix colors and have USB charging port for their phone. Basically it is a steampunk insulator night light that uses RGB LEDs. The top and bottom halves can be independently lit up with RGB or white light, or turned off.
I made the base out of oak strips so I could get a finger joint look. The copper plates were etched with the laser printer mask method and muriatic acid. The 5 vdc supply was from an old cell phone charger.
The hard part was cramming a number of LEDs in the top half and bottom half of the copper pipe insulator support.
Stain and plain old carnuba wax finished it all off.
