Back to the Future

These mechanical light switches transform an ordinary appliance 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. The joints are all finished with brass hardware, and the laser engraved details have the swirling ornamental lines of a Victorian engraving. The switch installs easily in your bedroom, hobby room 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.

      Everyone who sees it likes it. It's perfect for my man cave.
      Because it's made of wood, I'm afraid of it breaking, but that could just be me.

          Always wanted a custom different switch cover for the bathroom in our garage.
          This really fits. My husband sprayed brown paint before he installed this to make it suit his taste. It is definitely something different and useful.

              My friend called to tell me that his wife easily installed this in a central hallway and that their 8 year old granddaughter loves to turn this switch on when she goes by, but more importantly he also finds that this switch is used now more than ever and whenever he does he thinks of me. What a nice compliment.

                  Saw this in the catalog and decided to treat myself for Christmas. Love it! Could not have been easier to install, just like any light switch plate. Got many compliments from family when they saw it on our wall. A real conversation piece. The look is more attractive than the picture.

                        I bought this for my 14 year old son who loves anything with gears, sprockets etc. kind of steampunk looking. He loved this, has taken everybody up to his room that comes over. And he really liked the additional informational card that was included with the item.
