Lamps,lights and lanterns

The last days I have been taking things from the S.O.U.P. (Shelf Of Unfinished Projects) department and trying to finally finish them.Quite a few of them are lamps,lights and lanterns.One of them has a Joule Thief circuit in it with a white LED and the other one has a light bulb and cord.That one is made with a ceramic insulator,copper plated conduit pipe,a brass flower pot and marble base.

Bicycle wheel wind mill

I'm working on a windmill made with a bicycle wheel right now,amidst all the robot projects.
This will use a Joule Thief to make the LED(s) light up.I also will use this project as an entry in the Instructables Make it Glow contest.

Glass Robot

For a long time I wanted to make a robot mostly out of glass parts.And finally it seems that I will do so.
At this time I don't know what kind of circuit it will have:Joule Thief or Theremin or maybe Pummer.
Speaking of Joule Thief I have almost finished another project,made with embossed tin sheets.Embossing is something I want to use more in some of my projects.
