So this was a lamp I had in mind for a while, and this challenge finally gave me a reason to finish it Grin

We were getting rid of an old computer so I asked my mom if I could take it apart.  She said I could, and I figured I would be able to make something out of the parts.  The top is from a cd and floppy disks, the hearts are from the circuit boards in the computer, and the keys spell out love around the lamp.

On to pictures!

I used a hand saw, and a dremel to sand down the edges.  Have fun!
