I have been contemplating constructing a Steampunk decorative light since I saw some on Steampunk websites. I have plans for much more elaborate lights with rheostats, red warning lights and multiple switches. Here is my first prototype light. I used an oak card file box and some porcelain fixtures that I bought in a box of electrical stuff at an auction. The tube like bulbs are used in desk lamps and display cabinets, but offer an old time tube type look.
I think that I will stain the box a dark color and fill the gouges that using the wrong hole bit caused. What do you think? Am I on to something that someone else would want to decorate with?
