Intro: DIY Industrial Black Pipe Lamp With Touch Switch

In this instructable you can see how to make industrial pipe lamp. You can change the design and make your own or you can replicate the one I made. The lamp is made with black pipe and edison bulb for cool industial look. The project can be built with minimal tools.

Step 1: Materials

Black pipe and fittings

Bulb Socket

Edison Bulb

Electric Wires


Black matte paint

220v Touch Switch

Copper wire

Few years ago I made a black pipe hanger for a DIY contest

Few days ago I decided to make a lamp that will look like it

I also used black pipe to build the lamp

You can easy change the design and make your own.

It is a fast and easy to build project and minimal tools are needed

Step 2: Production

I used rubber coating wire for more safety

I wrapped the ground wire around the bulb socket to make contact with the lamp body

Try not to turn the wire with the pipe parts when connecting them

Make a hole under the lamp for the electric wires

I added a touch on/off switch from aliexpress on the wire, the touch switch has 4 wires, one connected to the lamp metal body.

    a 220v touch switch sounds a bit more dangerous in my head than it probably is :)

    It is not dangerous but if you wish you can use normal on/off switch

    I couldn't help but notice that the pressure gauge on your lamp is in just about the right place for a clock!
