I started the lamp in Bluefields, Nicaragua, where I couldn't get an external power supply. It took me longer to finish than I thought, and I ended up finishing it stateside where I could get one. The friend I made it for lives in New York, and normally has no trouble getting electricity, so adding a wall plug seemed like a nice touch. The parts would have cost less than $5 if I hadn't bought the power supply; RadioShack charged me $20 for that piece.
