A while ago I rebuild an old philips tube radio to house a 2.1 pc speaker set and put it on my desk. Since that time I didn't like my 'modern' webcam and desk lamp anymore. Time for new old looking rebuilds. That was when I started my desk lamp collection. I needed something which looks cool and old. I thought of steampunk, plumbing and upcycled headlights from bicycles and cars. While collecting instructables containing such desk lighting more and more desk lighting was found, evolving this collection to upcycled desk lamps.
