Sometimes I will just browse ebay for cool old
crap stuff. I was trying to come up with something handmade to give to my wife for Christmas this year and this old desktop microphone caught my eye. And you know what’s better than one microphone lamp? Two microphone lamps. Ah ah ah.
I have to say that this project did not finish the way that I ultimately wanted it to. There is a button for talk-back on the microphone that I could not for the life of me figure out how to turn into a RELIABLE on/off switch, so instead I merely put one on the power cord. It’s a bit disappointing but happens from time to time and I’m still very proud of the end result.
Hint for beginners: Edison bulbs make an otherwise boring lamp look way more sexy (but are also SUPER hot so watch yourself).
