I loves a DIY lighting project, and particularly dig those that can be crafted up from easy-to-find hardware store materials. Inspired by a high-end piece he saw online, Tim Wikander came up with this simple tripod lamp project using scrap materials and a few basic hand tools.
Tim says, "I set out to design a simple yet sturdy desk lamp that almost anyone could make. Drawing inspiration from scrap project materials and Hoang M Nguyen's "Lampfire", Tres Lamp is a customizable lamp that can be constructed with the most basic of tools."
