making outdoor floor lamp- need wire,socket advice
I like to read outside on the porch. There isn't enough available light for reading once darkness rolls in. I'd like to make a simple floor lamp that can remain outside. While it is easy enough to construct the body of the lamp out of non-conductive materials, I'm stumped as to what type of socket I can use (phenolic or brass?) and the type of wire to use suitable for outdoors, given that most lamp sockets are 2-wire.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
