Introduction: Turnable Table Lamp

Here's an instructable to make a cosy table lamp that you can turn in three ways.

This was a school project from a year ago an I decided to make an instructable of it.
We had to make a new kind of table lamp using wood.

Step 1: What Do You Need?

What do you need?

• 2 oakwood planks; dimensions: 12mm*18mm*2400mm
• 1m Led-strip
• Thelephone linecord
• sandpaper
• wood to make plugs (see picture)
• glue for wood
• soldering iron

Step 2: Worksheets

In the pictures you can see the dimensions from the oakwood and how you connect them.

You have to make 4 squares and 5 triangles.

Dimensions for the squares:

each plank has to be 14cm long, you need 16 planks.

Dimensions for the triangles:

the short sides of the triangles have to 14cm long and the long sides 17cm.

you need 10 short sides and 5 long sides.

Dimensions for the plugs:

the plugs need to be 2cm long.

Dimensions for the Led-strips:

the Led-strips need to be 7cm long, you need 3 of them.

Step 3: Cutting the Wood

Use an electric cuttingmachine to cut the oakwood in 45° angles.

Use some sandpaper to flatten the surfaces.

Step 4: Connecting the Planks

Connect the planks with wood glue. Make sure you have 4 squares and 5 triangles.

Step 5: Making the Model

First of all, make some holes in the wood to place in the plugs.

Then connect them with wood glue like you see in the pictures.

Step 6: Soldering

Solder the thelephone cable to the Led-strips to connect them.

Then stick the 3 Led-strips to your lamp.

Step 7: Enjoy Your Lamp

You can turn your lamp in 3 stands.
