I'm a 15 year old high school student. For my AICE Design and Technology class, we were assigned to design and create a lamp. Our teacher strongly incouraged us to submit our project to this contest. I really enjoyed doing this and I hope to come up with more BRIGHT ideas.
Step 1: Gather Materials
Parts list in picture above
Step 2: Assembly
First, I assembled the base and started running the lamp wire through. Then I screwed in the main pole and ran the lamp wire through that also. After, that I attached the first arm and wired the light bulb to the lamp wire. Then, I did that step two more times and wired a rotary switch to the top of the pole.
Step 3: Adding Light Bulbs and Mason Jars
Finally, I screwed in the light bulbs to the fixtures and then I screwed on the mason jars over the light bulbs. Now it's time to sit back and enjoy your new floor lamp!
