steampunk_diy_light_switch_plateTaking a blowtorch to things isn’t exactly my forte. Anyone who has tried my crème brulee knows this to be true. I might be swayed to pick up the torch again now that I’ve seen some very cool work by Jake von Slatt of Steampunk Workshop. Perhaps there are a few HomeFixated readers that could use this DIY inspiration too.

Brass (not brass-plated) light switch plates, bits and bobs (like little cogs, gears and wheels – whatever turns your crank – pun fully intended), some solder and solder paste, a nice hot torch and bit of imagination took a basic décor item and turned it into one-of-a-kind piece of functioning art with an industrial edge.

Check out the step-by-steps and the various creations over on Steampunk Workshop.

About Jen

Jen (but never “Jenn”) Byck, aka the Fix'n Vixen, is a Toronto-based freelance writer and communication consultant who is undoubtedly home fixated (she is also TV fixated, really bad TV fixated and donut fixated). Her approach to home improvement has been rather trial and error, the latter of which is evidenced by the amount of spackle she buys on an annual basis.
