A everyday lamp made from a old fire extinguisher. Using parts from a old lamp too! My first instructable.

List of Items:
Fire Extinguisher (Old ones work best)
Lamp (even a 15$ one at walmart works)
Drill with metal drilling bit
Place to empty "baking Soda"

Step 1: Emptying the Fire Extinguisher

Choose an old fire extinguisher. And Let Er Rip! The easiest lamp to emtpy is a fire extinguisher that needs to be recharged but its not as fun.
Looks great. Where did you get the fire extinguisher?
no baking soda if you have the water based type
It'd be really neat to replace the nozzle on the tube with a light bulb, and put some flexible wire wire inside of it...so you can move it around.
I made one like that, except I made it into a flashlight. Here is my page about it. Please leave a comment if you liked it. I will try to make an instructable for it soon.<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.motormayhem.net/2008/03/26/fire-extinguisher-flashlight/">http://www.motormayhem.net/2008/03/26/fire-extinguisher-flashlight/</a><br/><br/>
