I designed this small lamp for my summer camp students who built the 8 watt stereo amplifier. Before they attempted to solder all the components for the amp i let them solder the switch and light fitting. They had no idea i had made these lamps for them so i hope they enjoy the lovely warm glow. The sizes of popsicle sticks used are 11.5 cm and 6 cm. The base was a 5mm thick piece of board that i had lying around, inside the lamp are matchsticks which stop the lamp from falling over the base. The bulb is 7 watt and produces a lovely warm light.

Lee-Kuo found a new pair of speakers in our local electronics shop, which gave him the idea to build little speaker boxes and drive them with a self built amplifier. He designed the box with a bass port at school and we did a quick rendering in Cinema 4d to see if it would look good. I cut the wood and sanded it in about half an hour and Lee-Kuo did the soldering and electrical connections. We are really pleased with the results and they sound really powerful.

This was another summer vacation craft that Lee-Kuo made. He missed the crazy golf course in Germany and decided to make his own from wood. We found a wonderful set of instructions on the internet from a magazine printed in 1950. Lee-Kuo had so much fun sawing, cutting, sanding, shaping, drilling and gluing. The summer vacation was simply too short so he only completed 5 holes, nevertheless they are superb. click here for the original 1950 instructions
