What do People do with Old Vacuum Tubes?

2:15 pm

For most of us, when our beloved tube amplifier starts sounding bad we know it’s time for new tubes.  For most of us, this means finding replacements and junking the old worn out tubes. But some folks manage to find creative and interesting ways to deal with these old cast-offs. We’ve found sculptures, jewelry, chess games, and more.  It seems an artist’s vision for what’s possible is  unlimited. Here are some great images we’ve found showcasing various artists work.
