Make Your Own Desktop LED Lamp #makereducation

FS4T3SEI63HWYE8 MEDIUM

This desk lamp tutorial from Saiyam would make a great classroom project!

Desktop lamps are very useful and present in every person’s house. People use them for reading and studying. CFL lamps are the most commonly used table lamps but the problem with them is that they take too much power and they need to be plugged to an external power supply. LED lamps are much cheaper and energy efficient but still buying them from internet and shops costs more than $10. What if you would make one at home? Well, it can be easily made with some cheap and basic electronic parts. So making them at home would pass your time and also save money as it would cost only around $5-18.

You may have seen many instructables on led lamps but the special thing about this lamp is that it is very cheap as it uses a stainless steel ruler and cardboard for making its structure which most of the people have lying around. No wood, plastic or acrylic is used to make it so you don’t require special cutting tools.
