Inspired by the work of Alexei, had in mind for some time, make a LED lamp.
Everything was new for me so I first got the led and find out how they were used.
I liked the result and started the design of the lamp itself.
I started with the idea of ​​a desk lamp but then I go to a standing height allows use next to the bed.
The base is a wagon wheel center, which I think was my grandfather, and has a brass ring. I found it in the barn we have in the field.
The arm is algarrobo and the top is: center “molle”, as it has an orange color that attracts attention and sides of Algarrobo.
The hockey stick shape was mere coincidence. It was all I had of “Molle” and did not want a straight across so I gave him a crook … once I saw what appeared finished.
Not much merit but served to my living and explore new techniques.
Greetings to all!

It does look like a hockey stick ! The Canadians here on LJs should like it a lot. Ice hockey is extremely popular in Canada. Clever use of the wagon wheel center too.
