Hanging Lights with Vintage Bulbs Build

I designed and built these Hanging Lights with Vintage Bulbs for a coffee shop to hang over the sales counter. It’s a very simple build and I think they came out great! The light consist of a wood block with a hole that holds the ceramic light fitting. The red 2 core cord is braided and adds a modern touch with a vintage flavour to suit the bulb. These vintage bulbs are great, you get them in all different shapes and sizes. Links below to where you can purchase the parts I used: Vintage Light Bulbs (110V/220V): https://goo.gl/JMsLiW Red...
