Aaron Jarry's Air Tool Lamps Are Contemporary and Manly

There may be no desk light more manly than these air tool lamps. Etsy merchant Aaron Jarry of the Etsy shop JEngineering is the man behind these unique lights. Jarry took pneumatic power tools and turned them into desk lamps. He works exclusively with nail guns, turning their pneumatic hoses into power cords.

In addition to looking rugged, the air tool lamps also look quite stylish. Jarry has given power tools a contemporary spin by adding the aforementioned black shade and a wooden base made using oak stained with ebony (there are four rubber feet on the underside of the base to prevent sliding). The lamps range in price from $185 to $200 and are available now. And just in case you were wondering, the nail guns no longer work, at least in a traditional sense.
