Steampunk Desk Lamp

Steampunk Desk Lamp

OK, so it’s one part wood turning and one part crafting and not to everyone’s taste but I really dig the outcome.

Light on my desk. I need to make some space for it…

I bought some cool Edison style light bulbs a while back and just thought I needed to try this industrial thing. My office is very modern and it works for me. In fact, I would even go so far as to say that my office is my favorite room in my house. That said, sometimes I wish I didn’t work in a home office. It can be really distracting and noisy at times so I’ve been looking on websites like, to see if room dividers might be an option for me. It’s only an idea at the minute though.

To be honest, I have been thinking about redecorating my office for some time now and I am so happy with how it has all turned out. It is so important to create an environment that you feel comfortable working in after all. I just need to buy a new chair now to finish everything off. A friend of mine recently bought a cool new office chair from office monster so I might have to take a look at some of their chairs for inspiration.

As for my lamp though I wanted it to look like someone was locked in a basement with a bunch
of junk and needed light, so they cobbled together whatever they could
and came up with this. In all truth it’s kind of what happened!

I raided my shed and found a bunch of electrical and plumbing parts
that I mashed into useless gears and buttons. I already want to build
another one, maybe a bit more refined this time… What do you think? Would you have one of these lamps on your office desk? Be sure to let me know your thoughts as I cannot wait to hear what you all have to say about my new lamp!
