#592 Snowflake Lamp

Finding a new home for some @LuckyResistor Snow Flake boards in a lamp stand.

Build

Notes

I’m in the process of unpacking after a rennovation and I discovered some long-forgotten Snowflake decorations designed by @LuckyResistor who I got to know through the Boldport Club - see LEAP#355 Snow Flake for my original build.

While wondering what I might do with them, I unpacked an old horse-scultpure lamp and found my answer!

This is a simple build (my workbench is not quite back in action yet!) where I basically:

  • removed the original AC-powered lamp
  • re-wire with a CR2032 battery and switch on the side of the lamp
  • hang the 4 snowflakes in the lamp

LEAP is my personal collection of electronics projects, usually involving an Arduino or other microprocessor in one way or another. Some are full-blown projects, while many are trivial breadboard experiments, intended to learn and explore something interesting (IMHO!).

The projects are usually inspired by things found wild on the net, or ideas from the sources such as:
