Picture of Book Lamp

I made a lamp out of some old books. I used a lamp kit I bought at Lowe's along with a couple 6" nipples and some wood legs (with pre-installed screw). I just drilled a hole through the center of each book and in the bottom cover of the bottom book to attach the legs. I had to cut out some room in the pages to make room for the nut that held the legs in place (that was the longest part of the project). I also glued the books together to keep them from spinning.
That looks great. Love the shape of it. :)
