Aluminum "Radio" Lamp

I have been making different versions of this lamp for several years. The basic elements are Paperstone (an environment friendly counter top material), Aluminum, and steel. Inspired by high-end ,tube style, stereo gear, this little lamp makes a great night light or accent for those darker corners in the home.

Paperstone is great. It is easy to work with, holds a tap for screws, and polishes up to a nice sheen. The aluminum body is a piece of 4" channel. The socket covers are steel socket cups that have been darkened with gun bluing. The aluminum was darkened slightly with an aluminum black chemical. All the surfaces, Paperstone and metal, are waxed and polished. The porcelain sockets will take 60w incandescent bulbs as well as any medium socket LED bulb. There is a full range dimmer in the base that will work with all incandescent and most dimmable LED bulbs.

Dimensions: 9" wide x 5" deep x 5" high
