Roboto Ronin jack stand lamp with VW hubcap shade


Rare find — there's only 1 of these in stock.

Item details




This upcycled table lamp would happily serve motorheads and sci-fi enthusiasts alike. It would work well on a desk, but also on a nightstand or a side table for reading, or as a bright spot on a bar or counter.

It's made from an old jack stand and a vintage Volkswagen hubcap. I repainted the stand in flat black. Then had the hubcap sandblasted to remove the rust and loose plating before painting it a glossy purple outside and matte silver inside. Has a double socket, teeny VW pull chain ornaments, and a stylish chrome acorn nut finial.

- Matte black bases, 8 inches on a side
- Shade is gloss purple outside and aluminum color inside.* Embossed VW logo on the top. About 11 inches in diameter overall.
- Height is adjustable to 16, 18, or 20 inches.
- Takes two torpedo-shape standard-base bulbs, 40 watts max, since otherwise the shades can get uncomfortably warm. Two bulbs are included.
- Pull-chain on-off switches.
- Cord is about 5 feet long.
- Comes with optional soft plastic feet to protect your tabletop.

*Because the hubcap was in rough shape when I got it, the interior finish retains some texture. The exterior is smooth but not 100% perfect.
