Swing Arm Lamp Plans


Swing Arm Lamp Plans

Cost: $7

If you would like to build your own version of my Swing Arm Lamp these plans can help you to do so.

The plans consist of an eighteen page PDF file, which includes some 2D and 3D renderings as well as six pages of 1:1 drawings. These 1:1 plans can be printed out and taped together to give you life-size plans which can be used to trace out the parts for the lamp. (Or simply glue them to the wood and cut the parts out.)

These are not detailed step-by-step build instructions, just 1:1 plans. This is meant as a companion to the youtube video (linked in the article above). The two should work together.

This plan package is ONLY focussed on the wood part of the project. You will also need a lamp cord + socket of some kind and a lamp shade.

NOTES ABOUT 1:1 Plans: The 1:1 plans have a diagonal and square grid overlay to help you in assembling the pages together into one big plan. The grid squares are 1" on a side. You will need to ensure that your printer is printing at a true 100% in order to get an accurate plan. You can check this by first printing out a few pages and measuring the diagonal grid, and then making any needed adjustments on your print menu -- for example, setting it to print at 98% or 102% as needed -- and then testing again.


Here is a preview of several pages from the plans:

On receipt of payment, a link to download the plans will be emailed to you.

The PDF file is 1 MB in size, and should display on any computer equipped with a PDF viewer such as Adobe Acrobat (mac/win/linux) or Preview(mac).

If you have any questions or concerns, please see the "Contact Me" link under the "About" menu at the top of every page.

(Please Note: The "Buy Plan Now" button will pop up a window to gumroad.com which is the digital store hosting company that I use to handle the purchase transactions.)

There can be no refunds on downloaded plans.

Thank-you for your support!
