i think manny people here allready know that i was planing to build a Monster Jet.
First i wanted to build it out of Aluminium or Stainless Steel. I found out that this would be very expensive. Only the Material would cost ~600 Euro for one Lamp :(
So how can I build this lamp with less money? I thought about that a long time and i found a solution.
I am going to build it out of wood :) So it will not have the Aluminium or chrome finish, but a white Painting will look nice too.
Some parts will be done with wood (in Germany called Multiplex). And the middle Part (whre the bulb is) will be a Stainless steel pipe.
Here is the Progress:
First the Planing.. a little bit CAD :) Lamp will be 840mm Tall at the End.
And here we go...Drilling Circles out of the Multiplex plate:
Mhhhhh maybe you are right.
But maybe it depends on the kind of wood...
Maybe combining metal and wood rings can be a problem because of different expanding when heated... :/
For the space i think 1-2cm will be fine.
dont know if you have it avail. where you are.. but here you can get metal sheet in rolls..used often in valleys on roof..
this could be used to line wood casing from inside..
and would a wood treatment like a shellac protect wood from drying out?
