I am trying to make this, but I am finding it hard to because some of the information isn't specific enough for me. I went to home depot to get a rotary grinding tool, and they had a selection of 4 so I need to know the size of the one you used, secondly what was the size of the drill bit you used to drill through the top, and lastly ikea has a million light bulbs so I have no idea what the exact type is that you bought. This information would be very helpful, thanks!

play to learn!
