The Old Switcheroo

Your home...it's alive! Inspired by old-fashioned electrical throw switches—like the one flipped to bring Frankenstein's monster to life—Lance Nybye's ornate design transforms your blasé rocker light switch into a gothic statement piece. The plywood switch plate is laser-engraved with coils around the terminals and at the top and bottom signify on (connected) and off (disconnected). Made in San Diego, California.

Lance Jr. & Sr. stumbled upon the idea of jewelry design after a fire consumed their previous business of laser engraving bats. The bat business never made a full comeback, but they found a creative way to reinvent themselves. While attending weekend craft shows and weeknight street fairs, they had the idea of using the equipment they already owned to make wood laser-cut earrings. In addition to winsome wood accessories, the duo also creates brilliantly designed light switch plates, clocks, and other earthy and artful accents for the home.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Frankenstein Switch Plate:

    I bought this for my husband for Christmas for his new man cave. I love the design and it is so clever. But considering how expensive it is, I am a little disappointed with the quality. The wood is very lightweight and I'm not sure it will hold up. It looks like the parts were just punched out with a machine, and the edges are rough.

    Awesome idea! I am always looking for unique ideas for my brother's birthday and this was right up his alley. I love that the design is unique and is clearly hand-crafted. It is also a fun piece to have displayed on the wall.

      Compliments the eclectic style for which I strive. It catches the eye adorning the switch outside a coat room in my home. It's perfect!

        Comments about UncommonGoods Frankenstein Switch Plate:

        First thing I see now when I drive into my garage. Instantly makes me smile. So unusual in its design, so smooth and easy to use. Absolutely love this look. Just wish there were more choices for rocker switch plates, both single and multiple rockers. I'd probably outfit my entire house. A workman just days ago commented on it and insisted I write down for him where to get one. Ingenious! Exceeded expectations.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was prompt. Item was meticulously and carefully packaged, as a work of art should be. Really appreciate this artist's attention to detail from start to finish to shipping.

        My 3 children have the same birthday, twins born on my oldest son's birthday, and they each received a different design. I also purchased a 4th design for my home, adding a unique thread to the family's birthday celebration.

                  I have always looked longingly at steampunk switch plates made for toggle switches. And now here's this fabulous one for rocker switches! It looks fantastic and is lots of fun to use. I hope someone designs a few others so I can put them in other places!

                    First found this product line at a small shop in Port Townsend, WA and had to buy one. Got home, installed in seconds, and ordered a different switch plate through Uncommon Goods. Installed in seconds and has already gotten a lot of attention from friends and family.
