Thanks for sharing,

Kliff writes: Ooooh, I need to make this! I bought a very similar typewriter for $2 recently and haven't been able to justify it as a "dust collector" on a surface in our house. If I could turn it into a lamp for our stalled basement redecorating project, (but I've never made a lamp before), that would solve 2 problems. Care to share your how-to steps?

I LOVE this! Even Jim has never made a typewriter lamp. What's up with that Jim?!?
