Let there be light!


I love to make lamps, and I'm always on the lookout for pieces to use at our campsite or patio.  This is just a junked ceiling fixture.  I pulled the guts and coiled a 10' piece of L.E.D. rope light inside it. Now it sits on our patio table in the evenings.  I've had more requests for this piece than anything I've done!

Take care,
