lamp made out of tigerwood, the lumber was 1 3/8 by 3/4. All cuts made to size by hand (i dont have a table saw). Holes opened in the wood to reduce weight, at the same time it helped to tight the electric cord. The black stuff on the base and end of one arm is sandpaper I glued to increase friction between the pieces. The light is a 10 watt led with sealed to resist water and dust. I must say i am amazed how much light 10 watt can produce. On the first picture the plug is plugged into the arm, i made the holes on the arm to “store” the plug when not in use.

This looks like it will be a great shop built adjustable shop light fixture. Nice work.

Hi

I purchased at a local store here in Belem, Brasil, but is nothing special, just 10 watts and comes sealed to sustained dust and water

Nice job! Where did you get the LED lamp head?
