Looking in building several identical sconces as I finish my basement. I bought the craft plan:
I normally would design my own, but was somewhat stumped as to how the socket and sconce was mounted.
Anyway, I still may design my own, but I'm wondering how to determine what a safe wattage for the bulb would be? In the above plans, they call for a 25W bulb. Really more decorative than light emitting. I would like to make a sconce that could go up to, say, 65W.
How do I determine design, space between bulb and sconce? Note, the sconces will be on a dimmer.
