Make a lamp - any kind of lamp - and show everyone how you made it!

Here are some common types of lamps that we'd love to see:

  • floor lamps
  • table lamps
  • articulating / adjustable lamps
  • pendant lamps
  • any other kind of lamp you come up with!

From simple to complex and everything in between, we can't wait to see all the lamps.
