Introduction: Vintage Edison Chandelier
Here is a chandelier equipped with 3 Led filament bulbs in vintage style.
The tendency of this kind of chandelier is to have a wood beam, around which the electric cables are wound.
I find it too loaded and it could quickly become a dust nest! So I made this more refined version.
- a wooden board (reclaimed)
- 3 Amber glass bulbs 6W
- 3 vintage black E27 sockets
- twisted electric wire
- 2 quick connection terminals (Wago)
- 2 screws + dowels
Vintage black pearl E27 lampholders
19.99 € for 4 so 15 € for 3
Edison bulb E27 6W
26.99 € for 6 so € 13.50 for 3
Retro braided electric wire 5m
Around 40 €.
Step 1: Wood Cutting and Drilling
I cut a piece of reclaimed wood plank from a bed frame. For this I used the miter saw.
After filing the edges, I traced the location of the holes following the plan.
Above there are 3 holes made with a 30mm cutter to hide the clamps, and below there are two 15mm holes for the plugs which hide the screws.
Step 2: Dig Wood
A cavity is made with the router to be able to embed the terminals, and 2 grooves to pass the wires.
Step 3: Assembly of Lamp Sockets
I assembled the sockets, then I connected the electrical wires.
I chose a braided black wire to stay in the vintage style.
Step 4: Final Assembly
I added a cable hose clamp to secure the cables.
I made the connections of the phases and the neutrals with quick connection terminals.
I glued the cables with a hot glue gun.
And finally I screwed the 3 bulbs !
Step 5: Done!
For the assembly I used plasterboard screws that I hid with black plastic caps.
