How To: Build Your Own Awesome Blasting Off Rocket Lamp

July 6, 2016

These are very brief instructions created by Gavin of Tinkerings.org describing how to make your own rocket blasting off lamp. Without too much being dumb as shit you could probably figure out how to build one on your own. Basically it involves a heavy base, a wire armature, a model rocket, a bunch of polypropylene pillow stuffing and some LEDs. Pretty sweet, right? I'm going to start making these and selling them on Etsy. PICKUP ONLY. There is no way these things would survive shipping in decent shape. Because if there's one thing I've learned from the package delivery guys around here, it's any package marked FRAGILE is an invitation to try to drop-kick it from the curb to the porch. They break EVERYTHING. I'm still vacuuming my meemaw's ashes out of the carpet.

Thanks to DON'T TELL ANYONE MY NAME, who may or may not be participating in a witness protection program. Gregory Banton! Woops. I'm kidding, I wouldn't do that. Gregory Banton is the name of a kid I hated in 4th grade.

    I'd actually love to build this, but there aren't many instructions on the page where the instructions should be. I'm sure craftier people could figure it out.

    It doesn't seem that complicated. The lighting part is. But the overall construction is a big metal rod with stuff fastened to it... somehow (hot glue maybe).
