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.

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.

          I paired it with a mad scientist sculpture. Looks good together, except I'm afraid it will fall apart with use. The raw wood parts (like the handle) stain easily. It's a very fun piece, but at this price I think it should be higher quality.

              was excited about how it looked in the catalog but when I rec'd it, it was cheaply made and was an overall disappointment ... do not buy it unless it goes on sale.
