Steampunk Sewing © - 2020

$900

Sewing machine purchased at a vintage shop. The sewing machine was used as parts for other projects. I envisioned the not-so-beautiful sewing machine case as a light box after much elbow grease removing the old varnish. The vintage style lamp parts were purchased online from Vintage Lighting & Supply. Holes were drilled through the box, wiring run and lamp parts attached. Parts of an old cash register and various old adding machines were attached with old machine screws salvaged from those old machines.

Includes a dimmer switch. 
24” Tall - 25” Wide - 13” Deep

Blow Torch
Old kerosene blow torch turned into a lamp.
Not an easy task as the tank is double walled. And fishing the wiring through the inside of the tank was no easy task.

Fun project but not for sale.

This is an Edison Home Phonograph that was used for years by my family. When I received it there was nothing left of the working parts inside but it was a very pretty and interesting piece of history. Vintage lamp parts and bulbs were purchased and attached and wired inside. I added the old gauge and the watch faces are attached with screws. Comes with a dimmer switch and vintage style braided and twisted lamp cord.


Includes a dimmer switch.

Arborphone Lamp © -  2020

$800
This is an Arborphone Radio that was used for years by my family. When I received it there wasn’t much left of the working
parts inside but it was a very pretty and interesting piece of history. The French horn was purchased at an antique store, the
bell had many dents and I tried to make a stand-a-lone piece out of it but it just wasn’t working. So I cut the bell off and attached it to the top of the radio as a back drop. Vintage lamp parts and bulbs were purchased and attached and wired inside. The radio tubes were added by first placing them in position and then labeling each tube to it’s position. I then cut the posts on the bottom of the tubes down to just 3 and pressing those into a black stamp pad I then pressed those into position so I knew where to drill for each post. Once all the holes were drilled I simply pushed the tubes into the wood. 

I still had the original round speaker that went with the radio. I replaced the worn out speaker cloth over the wire cage, added a light inside the speaker and this then plugs into the back of the radio. All lights run off of one dimmable switch on the front of the radio.


Includes a dimmer switch.

Steampunk Singer ©- 2020

Unavailable
Singer sewing machine purchased at a vintage shop. The sewing machine was used as parts for other projects. The beautiful sewing machine case I envisioned as a light box. The vintage style lamp parts were purchased online from Vintage Wire & Supply.
An old gauge face and dial were combined with an old alarm clock housing to create a whimsical gauge. Holes were drilled in the box and old coco clock gears were then tapped in. 
21” Tall - 23” Wide - 8” Deep


I was once asked if I ever was not happy with a creation and started over. This is the first piece that I was not happy with and so I did pull all of the gears off and recreated "Steampunk Singer" above. I am much more happy with that piece.
