I will sell all of them eventually. I was invited to put them in an art show this spring or summer and after the show, people can buy them. I have too many to keep around all the time and I am designing more.

Maybe. I am not real interested in selling them just yet because I still like fooling around and tweeking them. But my wife is not too crazy about them and I have 7 of them with two more in the works. I love designing and building them so I am sure I will be covered in them soon as new designs fill my bald head.

I am almost finished with another SteamPunk lamp. I know I keep saying this, but this new one is my favorite so far. It seems they are all my favorite as I am building them.
I found out that the art show they will be in is a month long. During the show people can bid on the items and buy them after the month. I am kind of excited about it and am anxious to know what people say about them.

This new project is about half finished. It still needs the upper structure which will hold the "pull chain" that is coming from a hole in the bottle. That is not the correct bulb which will be a long thin one and it needs paint and antiquing. I think it will come out "interesting" if nothing else.

Thanks Mike. I am rushing to finish this last one because it is almost time to get my boat ready and that takes a lot of time.

No, I am waiting for some Steam Punk pulleys that will hang from the horizontal pipe above the light. The chain that turns on the light comes through a hole in the glass, over the pulleys to a weight that you pull down to turn on the light.
I think it will be extremely cool so I can't wait to finish it. I need a lot of time in between working on it because I am still designing it as I go along and something has to hit me so I can finish it

You've got a real talent for making these, and building things in general.
