"Potence" style lamp

After seeing this on the-brick-house, I decided to take a crack at making my own version of a Potence lamp and here's what I came up with messing around a few hours after work


The lamp is made with 1/2" steel tubing and steel flat  bar.

The handle is made out of a scrap piece of mahogany that i turned on the lathe.

I used cloth-covered wire that I bought from sundial wire, and electrical plugs and fittings from Lowes. I know it's not perfect but it was a quick first attempt. If I make more, I know some better ways to do things but for now I'm satisfied with the lamp.
