Anybody out there every build a swing-arm lamp? If so can you inform me where to purchase the arms or if you made it yourself, how? Thanks

I’ve often wondered how hard it would be to make one of these…somewhere I read about someone who’d made wooden swing arms so it must be do-able

I just saw an article from fine woodworking regard swing arm lamps. After some research I found that instructions can be found by googling “Christian Becksvoort swinging arm lamp” & you will find a bunch of info as well as some plans. You can also find info by interring fine woodworking swing arm lamps. I am about to make one. Ollie
