In my latest metalworking project, watch along as I use 5 inch brass tubing that I bought over 10 years ago, to build brass foot lamps for a client. For this brass metalworking project, I used battery operated wireless lights that last for about 100 hours, which I thought would be an interesting application to create a mood lighting in and around the house! Thank you for watching - enjoy!

  • Very nice again. But it's been years since I looked forward to watching your desk lamp making, maybe kind of anglepoise or completely wooden, anyway..

  • Beautiful. I'm gonna have to go the square tube aluminum or rusty steel 4"x4" route. Don't have any 6" brass pipe banging around the garage. Always wanted to do a version of theatre stage lighting like this to have color mixing capability.

  • only problem is changing the batteries which would drive one nuts: you need 1. rechargeable batts and 2. an external charging source such as Olight flashlights, oral b toothbrushes and i guess Apple devices, use. That is the only way you could fully use it's awesomeness.

  • Hey Jimmy, you did it again! Made something really unique using very few materials and genius but simple techniques. Those lights looks a lot better than the sum of the parts, the depth in the reflection inside the pipe you can half see really lifts it. The thing is, although a piece of pipe, some acrylic, some plywood and a bunch of off the shelf LED’s doesn’t sound like much, that’s not it, it’s getting the idea to put those parts together like that that’s genius. I’m amazed at your inventiveness and more amazed you can go on! Thanks!
