Introduction: Steampunk Lamp
Steampunk inspired lamp. Base is a gym stand salvaged from a skip many years ago. Base pipe salvaged from a scrap yard. The remainder of the fittings were new, 3/4" BSP malleable fittings. The lot was aged by rusting using salty water and then coated with metal laquer to seal it. The mains cable is covered with a bootlace, and at present the unit is dimmed with a variac, but I intend to put together a suitable dimmer.
