OK. It was a bad joke. But, I couldn't help myself. So, I'll just keep on going and say that in this mini-project tutorial we'll shed some light on creating a lamp using only the basic cone blob.

The Bend Tool, the Neck Tool and the Flatten Tool play prominent parts in helping us to form a desk lamp. It's not exciting; but, it does show three distinctly different outcomes for three different cones. And, it shows how we move the fulcrum of the bend tool to specify the primary bend point along our object.
