Shock Spring Lamps

I recently made 2 new shock spring lamps. The yellow one is made from an Ohlins spring and is short and simple. The red/orange one has an extra sprocket base and sits a little taller. Its fun playing with different designs for these type of lamp. These lamps would look great with a vintage edison type bulb or with a small lamp shade.

The 1st Brake Lever Lamp

I just noticed I never published this blog post from early 2015... This was the first bicycle brake lever lamp I ever made. This one isn't for sale and is on my bed side table currently. The brake lever is off of my Norco 125 dirt jump bike and has a lot of history to me. The grip is a lock on type with custom Martin's Bike Shop laser etched clamp rings. If you look close the design/ construction has been improved some since this one.

Throttle Lamp #7 & 8

 More throttle lamps!
These were made for my good buddy Jesse. He rides a 250 KTM - hence the orange grip. The one with the black grip is a present for his uncle. They both have the sprocket, brake rotor & transmission gear base. The orange one also has 2 transmission gears on the lamp shaft.

Throttle Lamp #6

Wow, I've made 6 throttle lamps now...
This one is fairly simple. Throttle mechanism actuates the lamp on/off. The base is a brake rotor, sprocket and 2 transmission gears. Also features a black grip with a simple lamp shaft and the signature spark plug shade finial

Nut Bowls!

These bows are NUTS!
I stopped in at a locat thrift store recently and found some large metal mixing bowls and thought they would be perfect to use to make decorative bowls. I started with metal nuts and tacked them together inside the bowls. I have bowls to make 7", 9", 11", 1-1/2" diameter sizes. Head over to the etsy shop to buy the bowls.
The 3 bowls pictured weighed 14.5 lbs and were made of roughly 600 nuts!
I'm also thinking of making more bowls out of washers, chain pieces and more...
