Introduction: Steampunk Lamp

Picture of Steampunk Lamp

This steampunk lamp is made out with pallet wood and with an Edison bulb. This is a simple project of one of Dan's Cordero project, who I admire a lot. I have done a recreation of this, improvising materials that I already had.

In the video you can see the step by step and the final result of this project. It is an easy to make lamp with a beautiful retro style.

Where did you get the old style cotton electrical cord and the old fashioned switch/socket. Every thing else is self-explanatory. Neat project and I am looking forward to making a couple as gifts.

Thanks. I got the cable and the switch both in Aliexpress as "vintage rope wire" and "vintage Edison Swich" but I imagine that you could also find them in Amazon.

Is your next instructable going to show us the heart that is standing next to the lamp? If so, I am waiting anxiously. This is simple and beautiful. You demonstrated the details well. Thanks.

I’m glad you like it, the hearth was one of my first projects. I show you another hearth that I made similar for a wedding present, my intention is to make another one and to record the process for my Youtube channel and here for instructables.

I am looking forward to it.
