No Wonder this took so long -- It's three things in one!

I got out all my lamp "stuff" and planned on making several lamps and putting a few in one post.  But after taking FOREVER to do this one lamp, I thought I'd post it because finishing it feels like a major accomplishment.  Of course, it is three things in one.  Not only is it a vintage camera, but it is also a lamp and a photo display.

It took forever because of course the one spot where I had to put the rod was exactly where all the mechanisms were.  After drilling, pulling,  taking the stuff out, more drilling and pulling, the bulb wouldn't stay in place anymore (but the bulb is the most fun).  Little stuff like that all through the project, but now it's done. Whew...

I have a few favorite vintage cameras that I just love the look of too. The little bulb is cool, so its good that you were able to salvage it. Persistent paid off this time!
