Repurposed Sears Fence Charge Box LampApril 24th, 2014 in member junk
Here's my latest lamp using a vintage Sears fence charging station box. The same day I ran across the charging box, I found the pieces on each side. Can you guess what they are? They were used when fishing in an intertube back in the day and the fins would fold out and back in to allow you to paddle along with your feet while fishing or use them like rudders in a current.
The shaft is a vintage flashlight and old lamp piece. The wood originally came from the pay phone that I converted earlier in another project.
To get the finish on the board, I torched it, sanded it, used some blue gel stain and then sealed it.
