Steampunk Lamp

Now that we’ve survived the holidays and things have slowed a bit, I might have a chance to blog a bit about some current and future projects.

Below is a steampunk lamp that I made as a Christmas gift for family. It uses a 19th century kerosene lamp base, a large vacuum tube illuminated by LEDs, and some tubular incandescent bulbs in a rather unusual configuration. The lamps are operated by a touch dimmer circuit, so that the lamp as a whole can be operated by touching any part of the brass base.

I really enjoy how it exudes energy and electric intensity.
