This is a lamp I made from a fuse from a 5,000 volt electrical substation. Kind of specialized but I like it. Most people would not know what it was but it has a unique look.

Many might not get it because those kind of fuses are probably not in widespread use anymore. What I like is the humor, but done with good taste and decorative sense for the room. A very nice and successful project.

I love it, sparky!! You must be an electrician!! I saw that and thought it would be neat if that lamp had a touch sensor in it and you had to turn it on by touching the metal part of the fuse!! I like making weird stuff like that!!

Merry Christmas, Jim

Thanks for all the comments. Yes, I was an electrician many years ago. I manage a crew now & this fuse came from a job we did earlier this year.
I like your idea Jim. I’m gonna check it out.

Merry Christmas to all!!
