Ola Maddox Floor Lamp September 24th, 2018 - 02:59:38
Today, I'm going to show you how I made the fluorescent tube floor. Lamp fluorescent lamps are usually located up high and out of the way and look very utilitarian. This is a modern take on the fluorescent lamp with a vertical orientation. It's a decorative way to showcase a tubular light.
I started this project by going to the Home Depot to pick up the supplies. I grabbed heavy duty, closet rod and some pole sockets some plumbing components: florescent strip lights, a few project boards for the box, a hardwood, dowel, heavy duty, power, cable and a wireless indoor, remote switch so using Nicola's gig ante floor lamp as inspiration. I knew there was very minimal components going into this lamp, so I didn't need to sketch anything out.
I could jump right into the project build so first I started by creating the box. I made this box in a wood shop, so I was able to make a miter joint, but if you don't have those tools you can just do by joints, I was able to open up the fluorescent lamps and remove the ballasts and light connectors.
The bells for the fluorescent tube lamps are heavy, so I locate them on the bottom of the box to add stability to the lamp after the components were installed. I sanded the box and then gave it a nice natural finish to preserve the wood grain. This projects a little bit complicated, but there's plenty of ways to customize it and make it your own. You could change up the bulbs for different brightness or even add black lights.
