A customer of mine wound up heavily modifying an Irvington he purchased from our Portland store’s Seconds area. He decided to give back some parts he didn’t end up using.
I set them aside to send them back to our factory for reuse or recycling, but my eye kept being drawn to them. A friend’s birthday was coming up, so I decided to use the Irvington parts to make him a lamp.
A ray gun lamp.
Some salvaged lamp parts, one cool bulb, and a rubber grip later, we we’re good to go! My co-worker recommended I get a toggle “on/off” switch to make the “trigger.”
Recycling can take some odd shapes!
