Step 3: Making the Base: Step 3

To cut the orange lines on the template, use a cold chisel and a hammer - you need to make a slot wide enough to accommodate the legs of the candelabra light kit.
<p>hi i've watched all of you video yesterday and i love all of those, i just wanna ask if i can use illustration board instead of alluminum sheet? thank you.. :)</p>
Thanks GracielleA! I used the metal sheet because it can be bent at a 90 degree angle and hold it so it's perfect to hold the light kit and the metal also reflects the light nicely.
I'm envisioning this idea put to work with some kind of double-sided room dividers made from beautiful handmade paper with a glowing light inside. Thanks for the inspiration!
You're welcome, glad to hear it sparked another idea!
