So some of you may have seen my facebook post yesterday about feeling the need to CREATE something. Well, I did it... it's not much, but it satisfied my appetite.
So there ya go! I've been in love with vapor lights for a while now, and I had the idea of making one with a conduit stand, which I did, but while at the orange store I had the idea of making a much more elaborate setup with four pieces of conduit coming out of the unit and back into a base and then using the four pieces of conduit around the vapor light to mount some sort of shade, but I decided to under achieve. I also thought for a little bit about making a four legged desk lamp, but my desk is already a little crowded so I opted for the floor model. Construction was helped greatly by a sacraficial Ikea floor lamp whose OD was just about exactly the ID of the conduit! Also very helpful was a series of videos by Dunwoody College that helped me learn the basics of conduit bending(which I didn't really need, but were extremely fascinating nonetheless)
