I am working on another Steampunk Lamp. This one has fire in it (simulated, but real cool) I will paint it like the others and add much more "technical" stuff.

I almost finished the third Steampunk light it is 99.99% done. I ordered a different, antique bulb socket so this red one is temporary. This light uses a bulb that has 99 LEDs that flicker in sequence to simulate fire. It is very cool in person but the camera just washes it out. The firelight uses 3 watts. I am also almost finished with the fourth one which is built out of a vintage blow torch.
Here is a video

I just finished this Blow Torch Lamp. The little pump handle turns it on.

Very cool Paul.

I especially like the middle one in the video.

Thanks Chef, that is also my favorite.
The new one I am working on is a totally different look and is mostly glass. I have never seen anything like it so I think it will be really cool looking. I am collecting the materials and still finishing up the details in my head. My Son n Law also wants me to design and build a water bowl for his cat that has a reservoir so he can go on vacation and his cat likes to drink flowing water so when the cat goes near it, water will flow out of a small faucet so the cat will drink. If it were my cat (and I don't have or want a cat) I would put out a bucket of water and tell him to get over it or stay thirsty.
