I was infected by the idea of having a dimmer on the top of the lamp.
Here is the step by step instructable how to build such a lamp.
Step 1: The parts
- Some pieces of plywood
- Some cabling
- A dimmer modul
- Some connectors
- A mains plug and a mains cable
- Some brass parts
- Some screws and nuts
- A mains switch
Step 2: Building the stand
Than I drilled the hole for the switch
After this I cut the inner part of the stand to have some room for the cabling.
Then I glued the top to the inner part and prepared the buttom plate.
Step 3: The lamp and dimmer holder
Than I cut a round piece into two parts
I cut the inner part of one wooden pieces for the stand
(Picture one and two)
Than I glued the round pieces on top of the stand
After this I drilled the mounting holes and teh hole for the dimmer.
(Picture three to four)
At least i mounted the poti for the dimmer and mounted the parts together.
Step 4: The cabling
From the mains switch to the dimmer module.
From the module to the lamp holder.
Have fun :-)
