I have this vision of a floor lamp made from an old car headlight. It came to me when I was at a swap meet last year. So I got my brother-in-law to source me out one, I knew he'd find what I was after, he reminds me of the guy in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance - if somethings worth doing, its worth doing right. He has a walk-in toolbox and its got everything you could possibly need in it and a lot of stuff you'd probably never need.
Here's my starting point an old dodge light.
Here's kind of what I hope it will end up like but I don't mind if it takes its own shape as long as everything feels comfortable together and gets along.
