Intro: Wooden Hanger Lamp
Here is a repurposed use for wooden hangers. In my previous iterations of this project I've been inspired by a pelagic marine mollusc called the Nautilus, which is where the design of this lamp comes from.
Step 1: Wooden Hangers
I had an abundance of wooden hangers left over for a spring cleaning so I thought to recreate a lamp I had made previously.
This project will only take 15 hangers, make sure to have them all matching in style.
Step 2: Break Down Hangers
Use small pliers to remove the hook and wooden dowel from each hanger.
Step 3: Cut Down Wood Hangers
Using your mitre saw chop the hangers in 1/2.
Then set your mitre saw to 45 degrees and make two cuts per side.
Step 4: Form the Angle /\
Using wood glue join the two small parts of the frame together and set aside to dry.
Step 5: Prep the Lamp Parts
Using a wood block, cut out the center with a router to fit a light cord kit.
Then using a brad nailer, join the re-worked frame parts onto the wood block and prep for painting.
Step 6: Paint the Frames
Spray paint the re-assembled frames on both sides.
Step 7: Add the Cord Kit
Screw in the bulb and cord into the lamp.
Step 8: Finished Lamp
....and that's a wrap.
