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.

When I first received this item I gave it only two stars because, although it was enormously attractive and quirky, it seemed somewhat flimsy. I felt it couldn't be used in a room where it would receive much use. Uncommon Goods contacted me and offered a refund but I declined because I felt the item had not been misrepresented and I would find a use for it as simply a decorative item. Since that time, my grandson discovered it and I offered to let him try it in his bedroom, with the explanation that "it's a little delicate". I was so wrong. It was obvious only upon installation how well the mechanism holds together and works perfectly, even with an enthusiastic 8-year-old using it regularly. Now there is one very happy boy who has the coolest lightswitch around, and I would like to retract my earlier review. I would definitely recommend this item to a friend. And I will never again offer a review of something until I've actually attempted to use it for it's stated purpose, instead of assuming initial appearances are an indicator of how something actually performs.

          Packaging was perfect to give as a gift. My husband really appteciates the design being that he is an electrician, and it really works! Great quality and would definitely buy again.

            The gift was perfect for my father who is someone who is content with everything he has in this world so he's really hard to shop for, but this website was full of things that could still brighten someone's day despite not really needing it because the ideas are clever and well crafted.
