Several years ago I acquired ( trash picking) a camera tripod that was in great shape and I wanted to make it into a floor lamp. After knowing I didn’t have the tools (and the skills) to do it, I was at the point of giving it to a friend who has yard sales. Had a friend who wanted to go to the art studios on Stock Island and we went into Damon Designs. He had a tripod floor lamp on display. To make a long story short, I asked him if he could wire my camera tripod and he did. HE DID!!!! I’m so glad I hadn’t gotten rid of it.
