## Hey all!

I took a small break from my mini-series "Helping the community" on ROS2 and the tello_driver for making an autonomous drone. I needed to clear my head out from this one, it grew to be an enormous project, which I'll tackle gladly soon.

Though I love writing techie posts, this time I made something a bit different: Today I'll share how I made a boutique lamp in 1-hour*.

* Not counting the 24H that the varnish needed to dry.

Let's dive in!

## List of components

(Spent around 50 ILS (~14.80$)) • Varnish • Turpentine • Anchors • Retro chains • Wire staplers ### AliExpress Overall of 44.34$

Putting aside my enjoyment and all the things I've learned while making this boutique lamp, paying 44.34\$ is still cheaper than buying a lamp like this from a store.

## The Walkthrough

• Using sandpaper, I smoothed the wood until there were no splinters.
• Then I applied 2 layers of varnish (12H waiting for dry, and polishing the wood, between each layer)

Note Although it is not the first time I work with wood, this time I've read the instruction written on the back of a varnish can. It was as easy as following instructions for making rice.

• Wiring, this part was a REAL walk in the park.
• Using a fluke I made sure there was no disconnection along the wires.

## And voila!
