Steampunk Style

These rack and pinion-inspired double switch plates transform an ordinary device into the perfect flourish for your secret library, steampunk chalet--or wherever your imagination lives! The fabulous contraptions are the brainchild of Lance Nybye Jr.. He crafts the mechanisms from decorative plywood, often leaving the alternating colors of wood left exposed at the edges. They're finished with brass hardware and laser engraved decoration inspired by the swirling lines of Victorian ornamentation. The switch installs easily in your bedroom, workshop or office--simply attach it over an existing, standard switch plate using the existing screws. 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.

We put our switch plate at the entrance to our kitchen, which is the light switch that is used the most in our house. I asked my husband to tell me something negative about it for my review... he couldn't give me one. His only comment was that maybe over time the gears would become worn and not work as well. We are both very happy with this purchase. I most likely will buy this again as a gift.

Great unique gift for low use switches

Very unique and attractive design. The double switch is big- 6 1/4" wide and 8 1/4" tall which means it may not fit everywhere. The construction is good but since it is intricate with thin moving wooden parts, it may not hold up well in hgh use areas or with people who wouldnt be careful- eg young kids or rebellious teenagers.
