There is nothing “fra-gee-lay” about this buffed-up living room fixture.
YouTube woodworker Paul Jackman recreated the iconic leg-shaped lamp from A Christmas Story – except instead of featuring lace and heels, it was clad in leather and hiking boots.
The replica is also much more masculine than the original considering Jackman used his own leg as the blueprint.
Unfortunately, since Jackman only makes these nifty creations for his YouTube channel Jackman Works, the leg lamp is not for sale on a larger market. He does, however, show you exactly how to make it yourself in the video below.
“The leg and base are made from maple butcher block scraps from previous projects,” says Jackman. “The lamp shade is welded from scrap lengths of rebar and wrapped in pleather attached using paracord that looks like … boot laces. The boot is attached using a threaded brass lamp rod through the entire leg with a nut on both ends.”
This is not the first fun creation that Jackman has made on his channel – he also does videos on how to make shot glasses and magnifying glasses out of pallet wood.
“My goals are to inspire you to make cool things, get people excited about making, and teaching while keeping it super fun and interesting,” says Jackman. “[Just] use your brain when using dangerous tools (although I’d recommend a push-stick, you shouldn’t get your brain too close to the blade).”
