DIY T-Rex Trophy Heat Lamp Looks Best in the Jurassic Dark

 |  |  |

When I first saw this metal T-Rex lamp, I thought it was pretty awesome. Then I realized that it’s actually a heat lamp, which is about as close as you can get to a fire-breathing dinosaur without it actually breathing fire. I wonder if you put a piece of paper in front of its mouth if it would eventually catch on fire.


This hot-headed T-Rex was made by Instructables contributor Yueshi, and it looks really great. There’s something just so imposing about a dinosaur made of metal, especially one held together with exposed screw heads or rivets. Yueshi made this creation using sheet steel, cut out using a plasma cutter, which happens to be one of the greatest inventions in the history of shop tools.
