Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

I got tired of my lamps using up bench space, so I decided to build a

shelf system for my lamps in the basement.  The basement is 65 year

around.  Since the shelf is mounted to the foundation wall, I wanted to have

an insulation barrier to keep the 'cold' from the lamps.

Using basic 2x4 construction I studded out a 65" wide by 48" tall workable

area. Voids between studs were packed with 3" of polystyrene foam.  I can

already tell the difference in this corner.  I 'hung' the studs from the floor

joist with 3/8 bolts and plumed before I tacked them down with tapcons.

I also scrubbed/cleaned/sealed/painted the fondation wall behind the

shelf system.  I don't have a table saw, so I'll go to the lumber yard to

have them cut a 1/4 inch oak panel to my dimensions to cover it up.

where in the world are you todd 

North Central Iowa

is it easy to get the mathmos lamps over there 

No, in the US I have not seen one locally.  The one's I have

purchased mostly came from ebay.uk or over sea's.

I recently bought some from Mathmos and had them

reshipped with 'forward2me' service.

Very nice set up. I'm running out of space on my bookshelf so I may be doing something similar very soon!
