    I wanna build a lamp for my friend for their birthday, but its kinda complicated (i think at least)

    I want to have 2 blubs on a single switch. It'll be in a bottle, so im thinking put some LED xmas lights inside the bottle and have a typical bulb up top. But I want to have the option to have just the LEDs on, just the typical bulb on, or both on at the same time.

    Anybody have any ideas on how to do it?




    edit: I guess what I'm looking for is a compact single pole triple throw?
