Good day friends, in my second instructable, I am explaining about an umbrella desk lamp I have made for my desk, in this case again the parts are almost free and I have used the junks I had on my working desk the only part which may be cost money is LED strips and a switch the rest are junks any way.

This umbrella desk lamp look like an umbrella as far as the opening and closing its branches are concerned and it may be partially opened and partially closed and depends on your working desk but it is pretty and worth trying.

INSTRUCTION:

It is so easy just make a hole in the lower part of pipe for wire and insert the pipe in to weight, then making the LED assemble separately and attach this two together, in the LED assembly while you attach the electrical duct cover to CD holder you can use pins as hinges for regulating the head assembly.

This is a pretty neat idea!

Do the "branches" sit high enough to be out of the way for you when you're working at your desk?

@seamaster ...firstly: thank you very much , secondly: my desk is big desk and its height is 50 cm and the distance of my head to that is nearly 100 cmm and it seems OK even when I stand up again the distance is enough.

Sorry, by height of 50 cm, I meant the branches are 50 cm higher than the desk top...I have added a photo to show its place on the edge of my desk.
