Spontaneous Lamp Build

Sometimes projects go from “whoo, that’s gonna be awesome looking, be fine built craftsmenship and I’ll be proud of it” to “yeah whatever, let’s get it over with”.

The results speak for themselves. Unfortunately.

And, no, I don’t care that it looks like a life hazard. It’s bright, that’s the only requirement.

Also, it IS a life hazard, so appearances don’t deceive here. How thoughtful.

But: none of the large copper areas are connected to the solder pads that carry the components. So it’s save to touch the “case”. It’s not save to touch the LEDs, though.

And, also, no, I particularly don’t care that I could have bought an 8W lamp easily.

I built it, because I can.
