Nice one MB! I like your distinct styling Smile

You ran into the same trouble as me, using a forbidden flashlight part that ruled out joining the handmade category. But in the end the important thing is that lots of special lights are made and documented. Thumbs Up

Nice job MascaratumB, I really like how it turned out – also that it kinda pairs with last years, maybe next year we will see the 3rd instalment?
I love hand made lights that look hand made, and you can see the effort and thought that went into them – well done Sir! Cool

Thanks djozz Wink

Yeah, I was not completely aware that a pre-made pill was not allowed when I started so I needed to move my light into a new category. After a “giving-up” moment Silly

I guess that my “mod” is not perfect, but it has been a user (on my bedside table) and I quite liked this new experience Wink

Well, I guess I’ll aim for some kind of “trilogy”, making something “rooted in wood” in the next year Wink I’ll start to plan the next year’s build (as a build, not a mod) Wink

And yeah, this was hand made as hell, that hot glue in my fingers was somehow painful and funny at the same time Silly

It is rustic Wink

This is pretty. Square and pocketable.

Yup, quite compact in case I wanna carry it with me somewhere. But this is my “emergency” light in the bedside table, as it is laying down and that way I can easily access the switch to switch it on in the middle of the night without making it fall Big Smile
Still, if needed, it is carryable Wink

BTW, I was thinking…if I had a different driver, I would definitely make this light something better, more modes, different led choice! Maybe next year Wink
