Introduction: How to Make a Simple Workshop Lamp

About: Founder of Capstone-X | Electrical & Communication Engineer💡

A few days ago, I transfers my workshop to an underground room where I can work freely away from the noise and I have a good space to settle my tools and start working, but this room needs a light where underground there is darkness so I decided to make a Simple Workshop Lamp that makes the indoor of my room bright, and I've added a phone holder that helps me record my Instructables.

Step 2: Saw

Saw the 4 pieces of wood by referring to the measurements using a wood saw.
