The Legend Of Zelda Triforce Lamp by EricMargera The Legend Of Zelda Triforce Lamp by EricMargera
- Triforce Lamp
- Jan. 2013

I saw a similar triforce lamp on etsy, so I decided to build one for myself! : D
I’m sorry… this one is not for sale!

Thank you so much for the favs and comments!




The lamp is made of beech wood and yellow acrylic glass.

More images: [link]

What you need:

• wood - I used beech wood (thickness 4 mm)
• yellow acrylic glass (thickness 3 mm)
• bulb holder
• energy-saving bulb
• glue - I used transparent silicone
• wood stain
• some tools for the cutting - I used a Dremel (rotary tool)

The building steps:

• front & back plate: cut the beech wood and acrylic glass in 2 equilateral triangles (side length: 30 cm)
• side plates & bottom plate: cut the beech wood in 3 rectangle plates (30 x 11 cm).
• cut out of the bottom plate a hole for the lamp
• cut out of the wood triangles the triforce emblem (may this template helps you [link])
• paint (stain) the wood in a color you like
• glue together the acrylic glass triangle and the wood triangle
• drill with a small driller tiny holes in the side plate that it looks like a triforce
• carefully glue all together

If I use plexiglass and paint it yellow will it still turn out? Plexiglass is 0.125 thickness, But not sure if it will melt the paint off or if I should just get a yellow light bulb and leave the glass clear.

Specifically, I'm having trouble finding acrylic sheets that are matte, translucent, and colored.

Can you elaborate as to what kind/size bulb and holder did you use?

I used an E14 (Edison screw) holder and bulb. I recommend LED or energy saving bulbs, because incandescent light bulbs produces too much heat.

I was looking those up, looks like only common in Europe, didn't realize you're out there. I'm in US. I guess I'll try to figure out what's similar out here. Unless anyone out there knows or has made one in US?
