This is a Make It Your Self guide to make a motherboard lamp.

I like to make trashdesign and I believe that this is open source designing.

I study in Aalto University in Finland.

So lets make some Trashdesign!

Step 1: Gathering of material

Doing a motherboard lamp requires 3-4 motherboards atleast.

Getting them from the well working schools computers is a bad idea.

I got these motherboards from a recycling center in Finland.

If they don't give theme away free, which is quite odd,

the tolerable price is approximated 2-3 /kg (in Finland).

But just go and ask or make a research in the trashcans everywhere!

Step 2: Making the first one

You will need:

-3-4 motherboards (depending if u make a triangle of square shaped)

-L-shaped metals to the corners

-junk wood

-screws & nuts

-a lamp kit ( basic ready to plug and play if u don't want your assembly to be hard)

-LED-light bulb ( For the safety & energy!)

-Trashdesign attitude!!

Step 3: Giving colour and finishing touches!

Now that you have the motherboard lamp ready you can give it

some color if you want. I did with a basic spray paint.

Now just remember to use the LED-light bulb!

and let your imagination flow!

Step 4: A ready and nice Trashdesign lamp
