This office or lounge lamp, easy to make, is made of a wooden and concrete bracket. I like the clean side brought by the materials and the end result for such a small budget.

How to Make a Wood and Concrete Design Lamp Desk Lamps

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Duration: 2 hour (s)
  • Cost: $25

List of materials

  • 1 x Bucket
  • 1 x Cement Bag
  • 1 x Wood Saw
  • 1 x Hacksaw
  • 1 x Wooden Clamp 4 x 4 cm
  • 1 x Bulb
  • 1 x 1m of wire
  • 1 x Shoe box (it will serve as a mold at the base in cement)
  • 1 x Threaded rod Ø6
  • 2 x ear nuts Ø6

List of tools

  • Wood saw
  • Metal saw
  • Bucket
  • Cutting pliers
  • Drill
  • Drill bit Ø3 and Ø8

How to Make a Wood and Concrete Design Lamp Desk Lamps

Step 1 - Make a mark for cutting

Make a mark on the cleat at 44 cm from the tip. Your mark should be 45 ° from the edge.

How to Make a Wood and Concrete Design Lamp Desk Lamps

Step 2 - Cut the cleat

With the saw, cut the cleat in bevel following the mark. Cut a second piece of the cleat at 46 cm (keeping its "beveled" end).

How to Make a Wood and Concrete Design Lamp Desk Lamps

Step 3 - Make a mark for each hole

You must mark the wood in 4 places. To do this, position the two battens as they are assembled on the lamp.

Take a mark at the intersection.

  • 1st hole (Ø6): to assemble the two cleats in the form of a compass
  • 2nd hole (Ø8): to pass the electric wire a first time close to the base
  • 3rd hole (Ø8): to pass the electric wire a second time from the top
  • 4th hole (Ø3): to pass the wire that will serve to "arm" the concrete of the base

How to Make a Wood and Concrete Design Lamp Desk Lamps

Step 4 - Drilling

Drill each brand. To avoid bursting the wood when your drill bit comes out of the hole, drill first with a bit of diameter Ø3, then a second time with a bit of an intermediate diameter then finally with the final diameter.

How to Make a Wood and Concrete Design Lamp Desk Lamps

Step 5 - Saw the threaded rod

Place the two strips of wood on top of each other, then insert your threaded rod into the hole provided. Make a mark about 1 cm above the cleat. Then saw the threaded rod at the level of the mark.

How to Make a Wood and Concrete Design Lamp Desk Lamps

Step 6 - Insert a wire into the base of the base

In order to solidify the cement, you can wrap the strip that will be plunged into the cement of a wire. This technique, more commonly known as "reinforced concrete", is based on building construction techniques.

How to Make a Wood and Concrete Design Lamp Desk Lamps

Step 7 - Attach the bracket to the shoebox

Screw the cleat into the bottom of the shoe box. Then reposition the wire so that it gets as much surface as possible. Be careful that it does not go too high so that it is totally immersed in the cement.

How to Make a Wood and Concrete Design Lamp Desk Lamps

Step 8 - Making cement

Follow the instructions on your cement pouch to make a small amount of cement.

Step 9 - Unmount the base

Wait 24 hours for the cement to dry well and remove from the mold. My shoe box did not resist.

How to Make a Wood and Concrete Design Lamp Desk Lamps

Step 10 - Lining the edges

For a cleaner look, I edged the edges of the concrete base.

How to Make a Wood and Concrete Design Lamp Desk Lamps

Step 11 - Attach the second bracket to the base

Using my threaded rod Ø6 and my 2 nuts Ø6, I attached the second bracket to the base.

How to Make a Wood and Concrete Design Lamp Desk Lamps

Step n ° 12 - Position the cable

Position the cable by passing it through the holes provided for this purpose. Then wire the cable to the socket.

Well-lighted work, well-done work

Desk lamps are essential to our work environment. For visual comfort on the one hand, because the days are long and the sun is not always at the rendezvous. On the other hand, the lighting contributes to the well-being in the office but also to the safety of the worker who better illuminates his sight and can concentrate better.

How to Choose the Best Lamp for Studying in 2017 Desk Lamps

Then the desk lamp becomes our ray of sunshine when darkness invites us and allows us to accomplish our work. Beyond their function, desk lamps can play a role in the ambiance of your room, or even in your decoration, for the most original.

3 questions to target your needs

How to light up?

It is recommended to have different light sources in an office for a better harmony of lighting. Indeed, a single luminaire strong enough to illuminate a room would be too aggressive.

How to Choose the Best Lamp for Studying in 2017 Desk Lamps

In the opposite case, a part of the room would be in the darkness ... enough to tire the eyes very quickly. Thus, you will need at least two luminaires: direct lighting (or even two ideally) on the desk itself, and a lamp (or even two) for indirect lighting.

What type of lamp?

In general, prefer an office lamp with an articulated arm. Thus, it will adapt perfectly to your needs. You can adjust the height, as well as the orientation of the luminous flux. The so-called asymmetric lamps are even more efficient at office work since they have the advantage of limiting the reflections of the light on the screen of the computer.

How to Choose the Best Lamp for Studying in 2017 Desk Lamps

If possible, check the length of the power cable depending on where you install it and the power outlets in the vicinity.

What type of bulb?

How to navigate between incandescent, halogen, fluorescent or LED lights. The European standard NF EN 12464-1 recommends lighting up to 500 Lux (unit of measurement of illuminance) for a professional working in an office, on a computer.

Occupational medicine generally recommends to use office lamps emitting between 2700 and 3000 kelvin for ergonomic lighting, ie a light close to nature light, but especially not superior in clarity. So choose a warm, not too "white" lighting. Note that the need for light is more important with age. A 60-year-old will need twice as much light as a 45-year-old ... who will need twice as much light as a 20-year-old.

How to Choose the Best Lamp for Studying in 2017 Desk Lamps

Note that the need for light is more important with age. A 60-year-old will need twice as much light as a 45-year-old ... who will need twice as much light as a 20-year-old.

The main types of office lamps

LED desk lamps

The LED technology has the best features for a desk lamp. It is the most eco-friendly of light bulbs, with a life of more than 50 000 hours, very resistant and generating virtually no heating. Its intensity must be at least 5W. These LED luminaires represent a good investment over time as the bulbs last 5 to 50 times longer than other bulbs.

Fluorescent desk lamps

Fluorescent lamps are fairly economical because they last 10,000 hours on average and are fairly strong. These bulbs called compact fluorescents for small sizes suitable for office lamps. Their intensity must be at least 9W. In the form of a desk lamp, the lighting is very powerful because of the efficiency of the luminous flux of these bulbs. On the other hand, you will have to have patience because they take some time to be reaching their maximum intensity.

  • The 18 inches x 4 1/2 inches heavy-duty rectangular metal shade is fully adjustable using the convenient thumb knob.
  • Takes two 15w fluorescent bulbs (both included).
  • 3-prong grounded power cord.

Halogen desk lamps

The halogen desk lamp is the one that best restores colors. If the profession requires working on colors, this lamp will be the most suitable. Its bulb lasts 3,000 hours on average. Its intensity must be at least 35W to be effective. However, be careful not to place anything on it that can ignite (scarf, post-it, etc.) since the halogen bulb heats up enormously.

Tensor 10C-001 Portable Halogen Dual Reach Desk Lamp
  • 20 inch reach, portable 5.3 inch diameter base, 5 foot cord
  • Black finish, adjustable balance arms, shade adjustment bar, adjust shade without the need to touch the hot shade
  • 1 x G4 20 watt halogen bulb (included)

Make your choice according to your needs

Precise work

  • If your main criterion is price, choose a fluorescent lamp, favoring the power of the bulb for better clarity
  • If your main criterion is efficiency, choose a halogen desk lamp that offers the best luminous flux and the most faithful color reproduction.

Computer work

  • If your main criterion is price, prefer an asymmetrical halogen desk lamp for optimum visual comfort.
  • If your main criterion is originality, choose a Led lamp that has the merit of offering a very large number of design considering the small size of the bulbs.

Decorative lamp

  • If your main criterion is price, choose a Led lamp. Many original models exist and the bulbs have a very long life.
  • If your main criterion is originality, aim for designer lamps, but do not be afraid of prices: you buy the originality. And then it's a sustainable purchase!

A fantastic table lamp - Intricate wooden profiles in the shape of a bulldog. The area of the stomach contains the bulb and when lit, reveals - as an xray - the dog's bone consumed. The effect is completed by the diamond encrusted collar and the leash (thread with textile coating). Sure to be the focal point in all sets and sure to be the focus of the conversation. Perfect for any decor or for display in pet stores, veterinarian centers of animals or schools. RAPELL - This is not a toy and care must be used when children are

Folding Design Table Lamp by Michael Jantzen http://www.idlights.com/folding-design-table-lamp-michael-jantzen/ http://www.idlights.com/folding-design-table-lamp-michael-jantzen/#respond Wed, 28 Dec 2016 20:46:06 +0000 http://www.idlights.com/?p=75806

The creator Michael Jantzen created the design and folding lamp Folding Light. The small sculpture is susceptible to movements. One can interact and modify the light by movement with the hand. In this way each one is in interaction with the object and creates his personal experience. At first sight, it has nothing extraordinary: a simple white cube. In fact, the four angles of this luminous sculpture make it possible to fold it on itself. By doing this, we see the interior architecture of this design object. The lamp works with an energy-saving bulb with six yellow boards reflecting it

In fact, the four angles of this luminous sculpture make it possible to fold it on itself. By doing this, we see the interior architecture of this design object. The lamp works with an energy-saving bulb with six yellow boards reflecting it at the same time. The boards combined with the soft light diffuser demonstrate the nature of the light by making it dance, reflect and refract with its entourage. In a way, these interactions become a game. The light scattering level depends on the inclination of the boards and their position, open or closed, as well as their direction. When all the parts are "unfolded", the light is as strong as possible.

The work of Michael Jantzen is very well known in the world of design. It has been exhibited in many galleries and featured in numerous magazines and documentary films. His works have been exhibited in the Canadian Center of Architecture, the Harvard School of Design and Architecture, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Michael Jantzen shares his view of things: "I want to reinvent the environment already built in order to extend the perimeter of consciousness". More info

The FurnitureCraftPlans® package is unlike anything that has ever been created. Inside this life-changing collection, you’ll be empowered with more than 9,000 woodworking plans for your home furniture, wood crafts, and just about anything made of wood.

Just imagine how long it would take you to amass your own package like this... The package contains over 9,000 premium woodworking furniture and craft plans that you can easily follow at home.It contains all the necessary info which includes drawing out clear diagrams, accurate dimensions and gave detailed explanations on the plans design .

These projects cover a variety of different projects you can work on at home; mostly focusing on furniture and small crafts.

There are plenty of free woodworking plans (or pay) on other sites that are created recklessly. Some have inaccurate dimensions, some did not explain what exactly tools are needed during the woodworking process while some only provide the diagrams without proper step by step instructions on how to do it.

Well fortunately, these flaws and mistakes are hardly be seen
in FurnitureCraftPlans

The good stuff:

- All materials and tools needed for a start are properly listed.
- Diagrams are clear and with accurate dimensions.
- Photos are also included; nothing was left to the imagination.
- Detailed explanation of plans will guide you from the scratch to the end.
- All is ready to be printed with proper categorization

Bad stuff:

Only thing I could complain about is that there are too many plans after downloading and sometimes you can feel overwhelmed. But as you can imagine, it is difficult to go through over 9,000 plans.

My suggestion is to focus on the projects you want to work with first. As it is categorized, all you need to do is to search and/or go to the category you want. Eg: I started with a simple birdhouse so I went to the "outdoor small crafts" section to look for related plans.

In Conclusion:

We highly recommend this package if you enjoy working with wood. It offers fantastic value for money. The woodworking plans are not complicated, they are straightforward and extremely easy to follow . Even a complete newbie is able to master the woodworking skills and techniques within minutes by following the clear and concise instructions.

One thing I really enjoy are the free updates. From what we've seen, they are consistently updating their members' area with new woodworking plans, all for free without additional charges.

As of writing today, the site is giving away a free bonus called "Woodworking Made Easy". So if you want to grab the free offer, click here to visit the site now.
