I saw this lamp on a website and decided to make it. Each layer can move independent of the rest. I just like the spiral look the best. The largest diameter layer, and base, are 14” dia. The total height is 20”.
I used cheap pine boards, not even poplar, from my local big box store. I bought the led light strips, wall adapter, dimmer and switch from superbrightleds.com. I bought the plastic tube from mcmastercarr.com. The tube is 3.5” diameter and 1/4” thick. I couldn’t find a frosted tube so I bought a clear one and tried sanding the outside of it to get a frosted effect. It still isn’t very great and I’m not positive what my solution will be. The switch actually came in a housing that I took apart.
