I saw a lamp like this about a year ago and was intrigued by it’s design. I didn’t find a pattern for it until last Winter when I couldn’t get back out into the shop to do any work but downloaded the plans. I recently found a newer set of plans at the ‘Instructable’ site and downloaded them too.
I was designing an LED lamp for it to replace the original high intensity lamp on the first one I found when I came across the second set of plans. I added nut and bolt heads to the pivot dowels to add some character and now will design a better looking lamp head to hold the LED screw in bulb. I’m thinking something along the line of a Transformer character since this will most likely end up with one of the grandsons.
This is my progress so far. Note nut and bolt heads on pivot dowel points.
This is a picture of the newest set of plans with the LED lamp head. I’ll post some more pics as i progress along.
