If so you came to the right place!
This was my attempt at making a minecraft torch that actually lights up! Online they go for about 35 dollars (!!!) so I decided to make one myself, using supplies I found around the house.
The supplies needed:
FPSX Gaming Torch Template (Just print it out on a normal sheet and it will work fine even if the bottom is cut off)
Wood (I used a 2x4 that was cut to match the print out)
Small and thin Battery powered Head lamp (to fit in the front of the torch)
Tape/Glue (to glue the paper template around the wood)
Sprayable Laquer (To seal it all together)
Sand Paper (to smooth wood and sand to fit)
***No Coal Needed!***
The Tools Needed:
Screwdriver (to open the Head Lamp)
Small Handsaw/ Serrated Blade (to cut wood and plastic around head lamp)
Drill/Chisel (to hollow out the top of the wood)
Step 1: Prepare the Head Lamp Light
It was easy to unscrew and disassemble, but the hard part came when getting it to fit. Take a handsaw and cut off the plastic surroundings, but be careful not to cut any wiring or battery casing. Once I got it down to what looked like an adequate size I still needed to shave off some more to make it fit.
