  I choppped up one of  those crappy T5 28 watt lithonia fixture
  Down to fit 2x 4 watt tubes.   I orginally wanted light two
  Tubes with one starter and 1 choke.  That did not work out very
 Well.   So i had to use two chokes and mount starter socket exterally to the  end plate.   And there  2 x 4 watt strip light was
  Made.

I’ve haven’t made any fixtures yet, but one day I’d love to make a working carbon arc lamp based on the old models from the 1900s. I know it’s definitely possible but would take a lot of work.

I made a “radial wave” with a yogurt cup with socket for the “head” and a aluminum pie tin for the shade. The “arm” was a curved PVC conduit glued to the “head” with a hole for the cord to pass into the cup.

A couple of table lamps (incandescent), way back when I was middle/high school aged

And over the last 10years or so, various fluorescent fixtures ranging from 1' up to 6'
