i'm back with a new project and got the idea from some people here who tought my former project of the steampunk steampipe-lamp could me more interresting...
So here it is...a steampunk-steampipe lavalamp.
The basics are the same and, made for you this 'step by step' tutorial so you can easely try it yourself.
Step 1: Steampunk Steampipe Lavalamp
I had this lavalamp option but had no idea how it would look with a smaller topside then the lower part.
But i gave it a try..
Step 2: Steampunk steampipe lavalamp
Step 3: Steampunk steampipe lavalamp
To be sure that the plastic steampipe won't 'melt' or get heathed, you have to use the part of aluminium that surounds
the lightbulb and built that inside the pipe's itself!
Step 4: Steampunk steampipe lavalamp
You can get this pipe-ing in any hardware store.
I've spraypainted it bronze, just like my other Steampipe light tube.
Step 5: Steampunk steampipe lavalamp
Is to cut out (in this case) wooden rings that you fit around the pipe-ing.
Get the ruff edged off...
Step 7: Steampunk steampipe lavalamp
Hot glue the pipe-ing to the wooden rings but test the lot together with the lavalamp attached so it will
be fitted good on the wall...(because the smaller pipe-ing is shorter then the big one) so, i've added a small
tube-pipe first to the smaller wooden ring...this to be sure that the lavalamp stands straight.
Step 8: Steampunk steampipe lavalamp
Use the bigger pipe-ing (lower part) to add the fitting for the bulb.
First fit the aluminium part (see step 3) inside the pipe.
I used some bolts, nuts and hot glue for this.
