Make It: Build a Stylish Copper, Wood, & Leather LED Desk Light

I've recently been doing a bunch of woodworking and lamp-making for Luke Hobbs Design here in Los Angeles, so it wasn't long before I found myself looking at what else is out there in the DIY lighting universe. Instructables user darbinovar didn't seem to have too much of a plan when she started in on this industrial-looking copper and leather lamp, but the final result really is beautiful.    

I'm not sure I'm sold on the feasibility of the leather lampshade although I guess I'd have to see it more in person. In the meantime it looks fantastic and would be a perfect addition to most desks or bedrooms.
