A cool visual concept. But in every other sense... nope.
Boutique lamp makers Typewriter Boneyard recently released the Book Lamp, a hardcover book with a built-in switch and bulb. But here's the thing: it costs $140. I have a feeling you wonderful fixers can put together a book lamp that looks just as good for a fraction of the price. Think you got what it takes?
And seeing how this it There, I Fixed It, points will also be given to most kludged-together design. LET'S DO THIS
Czech glass artist Michal Zahradnik> designed this all-glass steam engine, which he claims is fully operational and can run at 500rpm. Some of his other creations include a model plane and Harley-style motorcycle. All I know is the sound this thing makes is going to haunt my dreams.
I was able to build this lamp for under $20 (US) The books cost $6, The Switch and fixture cost $7.50, and a few misc. items that was another $4.
Another successful book lamp from a dedicated user! That particular light bulb looks brilliant, a great addition to the build. If you missed the first one, here's what user Richard C made last week. Well done guys, let's keep them coming!
