How to make a TRON style lamp
Welcome to my instructable : how to make
a tron style lamp. You will need:
5 Plexiglas SHEETS of 2,5 mm THICK 2 of 200 BY 205MM
2 OF 200 BY 200MM AND 1 OF 205 BY 205MM.
A dictionary A TUBE OF Plexisglas glue
Pliers A Nail
AN Adhesive mirror coated paper 450 by 700mm A Printer with 5 sheets of paper
AN Adhesive tape A Utility knife
AN X-acto knife A French curves set
A Metal ruler A Cutting board
A Piece of fabric A Power cord
A Light socket components A Screwdriver
A Color changing led lightbulb A Metal base Before starting, take a piece of paper and
start writing down…What exactly… THIS ‘HooM’ and stick it on a wall.
Now, let’s make this cube………… Glue,………… Assemble.
Use a thick book in order to have a correct angle.
And wait… Question, what does a 3 Kilos chick Do??? PIU PIU!!!
I know it’s not funny in French either. But now it’s dry.
Please do the same for all sides…Telling jokes is optional
Heat a nail… and do a notch (hole) for the power cord.
And Now the cutting phase. Print the patterns
Stick one at the back of the mirror paper. Start by cutting the curved lines with the
French Curves and the X-acto knife. Cut the straight lines with the cutter.
On each piece you cut, place a piece of scotch in order to maintain them in place.
Then in the end cut the squared shape sheet. This part is not very difficult but it takes
a lot of time and is quite stressful. I think that one side per day is enough. So
… Sleep, Cut, Sleep, Cut, Sleep, Cut
Here you are… Remove the protecting sheet.
Stick the pattern inside the cube. Use a piece of fabric to remove air bubbles!
Last step: assemble the cube/ connect the wire to its different parts, screw the wire
end. Screw the last component/ then the bulb/Place
the cube on top. Plug in……………..Ready……………..Alleluia.
Ho yeah … NOW it’s time to USE THIS: wooh !
