My friend, Paula Mccullough, sent me this curved piece of pipe, and asked me to make a lamp out of it. After considering 8 or 10 different ideas, this is what I came up with. I’m trying to convince her that, considering the skills she already has, making lamps is easy. The only ‘electrical’ work involved is attaching those two wires to the socket! And, it doesn’t matter which wire to which screw!
All the rest is just figuring out what you want to do, and getting the electric wire to where it needs to be. I hadn’t at first planned to use those two big bolts on the base, but wanted some weight to make it stable. And decided that the base, and lamp, needed ‘something’.
