A friend of mine gave me this Honda motorcycle gas tank about six months ago, and asked me to make some kind of lamp with it. It’s taken me this long of occasionally looking at it to come up with this idea. I could also have made it into a table lamp, which is why there is a block of wood in the one picture. But, I don’t think he has much counter/table top space, so I made a wall lamp. If he likes it this way, I’m not going to even mention the other possibility.
The one photo of my shop table is included to show why this project took me twice as long as it should have. If I’d taken an hour to clean it before I started, I still would have finished sooner! I think there’s a lesson there, somewhere.
