While in lockdown and nowhere to go, I built this lamp for my home office, which didn't have a lamp and I always had to use a portable one.
The idea was to combine natural wood which I got from the park nearby my house and my own 3d designed and printed base.
- Branch in the form of "Y"
- Wood drill bits 8 and 12 (and a drill of course)
- Utility knife
- 3d printer
- 50 cm wire
- Lamp holder
Step 1: Find a Branch
To be able to pass a wire through the branch I found a branch which was 50 mm thick. This way I could drill a 12mm hole in it with some proper distance to it's outer wall.
Step 2: Drill
I tried to drill the hole in the middle of the branch and tried to keep the drill centred. I drilled from both sides and fortunately both holes met at the junction.
Step 3: Design and Print
After this I designed the base using Fusion 360 which was a bit of a "trial and error" process, for a noob like me.
Step 4: Fit the Branch
I did some "cutting" of the branch outer part to fit it into the base. I used a utility knife to do this part.
Step 5: Wiring
At last I passed the wire through both base and the branch and connected the lamp holder.
