I made this leg lamp for my brother a few years ago. Will admit that I felt like a pervert when I had to put my hand up this great trophy and turned it on.

My only regret is that I had to use a shoe with such a bulky heel to drill and snake the cord through. Besides, they were the least expensive shoes at the store that day, and I wasn’t going to spend a lot on this.

The day after I gave it to my brother, I went over his house, and it was in the middle of his window, and was the only light on in the house. I was laughing so hard that I almost drove right through his garage door.

Let the jokes begin!

Interesting build. Yep, the thought process could go completely wrong on this.

That is one good looking “major award”. It’s indescribably beautiful.
Well done.
