DIY Hanging Edison Light

This is my take on a hanging bulb Edison lamp. This is a Christmas present that I made for my parents. They have a rustic country style to their house and they REALLY needed a light for the patio. I learned a lot on this build and am really happy with the final product! I hope they enjoy it! Merry Christmas Mom and Dad!

Hello Justin. Thank you for sharing your project, your errors and, most of all, your parents enjoy.

Hi, can you post a link to the switch you got?

your background music sounds like it could be in FLCL

Roger St. Jean says:

Yes I’m currently building one but a little at odds as to how to connect all the lights together, would love to see how its done.

Chris P says:

great vid — working on a similar project for a kitchen island.

Melissa T. says:

I really love this idea and have been wanting to make a light for my outdoor patio. What did you use to hang it? I have a flush aluminum awning and I’m not sure about the support.. it doesn’t look to heavy, any advice?

Eunique Beautae says:

cool idea. your parents were so pleased.

Sean Willis says:

Just an FYI. On the next one you build you really need to put the dimmer in a junction box as well. They are not rated to be outside of a box by itself. Very cool build though! I love the simplicity!

Conner Monier says:

You can learn more about it on stodoys website I think.

Austin Wang says:

How many lumens do those bulbs put out?

Chino Mirabueno says:

awesome job dude!

Candice Loyst says:

just for information, incandescent/filament light use voltage limiter dimmer (to make it dim, just decrease the voltage, this is what conventional dimmer did). while LED use current limiter dimmer, change the voltage only cause it on/off/blink (caps charging), you need current limiter to make the LED dim. most fluorescent light (like in your case) is not allowed to use with dimmer (dimmer just kill the bulb), you need special dimmable fluorescent light to use with dimmer.
