I am taking some broken dishwashers and washing dryers apart. It amazed me how much useful parts are on those machines next to the motors, bearings and pullies. It would be a waste just to treat them as scrap metal. So here is the first project: A table lamp! Stainless steel parts, electronic parts and wire combined with a piece of eucalyptus.

Very imaginative and creative. Recycling at it’s best.

It’s a lamp, not a lamb, right?

Fun project. I’m sure my kids would like a thing like that.

Genius, I love it
Well done, and to think how expensive and boring the production line lamps are.

Saw the video. As I said great design sense as you transposed the shapes and function to a new form which many people are not able to do, There use to be a show called trash to treasures and often it was trash to trash. Your project is a reconstruction of “trash” to an actual treasure. Love the butt checks in the Eucalyptus! LOL!
