In this project I built a lamp from a combination of wood and iron Of course I used recycled materials like building iron and wooden panels from a storage box and the perfect result! My wife loved it.

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Phase the Iron Base of the Lamp

In the first stage of building the lamp, I use the iron lamp base for a building that I found among all my curtains. I use this iron because I want to create a lamp made of recycled materials and also because I love its texture. At this point I cut 6 pieces of iron 52 cm and flattened them to the desired angles...

Step 2: The Welding Phase of the Lamp Base

The next step is the step where I start to weld all the iron that I cut and create the diamond shape of the lamp. To maintain an even spacing between the irons, I use 6-rib nuts so I maintain an even spacing without creating a static shape for the base of the lamp

Step 3: The Base Coloring Step

Once the base is ready I go to the paint job. I paint the base with a matte black color that I love

Step 4: Combine Cutting Pieces of Wood

Next, I start cutting the 6 pieces of wood I dismantled from an old storage box. I used a beautiful tree but unfortunately I do not know what kind of tree it is I would love to have someone can tell me in the comments...

Step 5: Combine the Wood Connection With the Iron

The next step is the one I like most ... the stage where I start to connect the pieces of wood to the iron base. The combination of iron and wood is the combination I like most in my opinion it is a winning connection!

Step 6: The Final Stage

last stage! Connecting a lamp house to the lighting base. Then plug in the power for testing to make sure everything works. And this is what a beauty I made a diamond-shaped lighting fixture from a combination of wood and iron like I love and everything from recycled materials I found in garbage. The perfect result Tell me in the comments Did you like it? You can also watch the full video on my YouTube channel

    Question 11 days ago

    Welding rebar? how strong is it? what welding rods did you use? My rebar joints often come out black, porous and weak.

    I used to weld them with fluxcore mig and get very poor results like you describe. But stick welding 6013 or 7018 seems to work fine.

    I really like the look of the lamp, the only thing I would do is use a 3 core cable and earth the steel frame just in case.

    Also I built a similar bearing bender earlier this year, and like an idiot I painted it without thinking. The next 50 parts all had red paint transferred from the jaws after bending.

    THAT IS SO COOL! Such a great idea and I love it - I want to try this! But how do you bend the rebar pieces so evenly and consistent? Did you use a jig or something? And what is that round thing that you have in your vise in the photo where you are showing the bending?? Thanks so much for sharing this! SUPER COOL!

    Hi, thanks so much for your support! To bend the iron I used the iron bending device that I built as well. You can see the construction video on my YouTube channel

    Thanks! Yeah sorry, I commented before I watched the video. Once I saw that it made more sense. But you made the bending die as well!? Nice! Any info on that, or are you saying that one is on your YT channel also? Seems like that thing or a rebar bender is pretty critical to get the bends correct?
