In this instructable I will try to show and explain how to make your own unique night lamp.
As you already know I like making lamps and in this tutorial I will try to go through the steps of how to create something beautiful.
I did those four lamps simultaneously, and you will notice that the patter is almost identical, the difference is mainly the form of the shade.
For this project I will be using:
various drill bits
sandpaper (100, 250, 400)
Step 1: First Things First.
Measure and cut all materials at one. This will make it easier for you, so that you will have them all ready, you save time, you will have only one mess to clean( it tends to get really messy when you have to cut and sand, etc).
Step 2: Preparing the Base, Column/stem.
Step 3: The Shade.
I have always wanted to make a lamp in blue and white, and I am glad I finally got the chance to make one.
By far the most difficult part is to measure the angle at which to cut the sides of the shade so that they can fir perfectly.
I hope that you can understand how I do it by taking a look at the pictures below.
Step 4: Finishing the Shade and Making Link to the Column.
Step 5: Attaching the Base to the Column and the Column to the Shade Holder.
Step 6: Wiring.
Step 7: Almost There.
Step 8: Enjoy Your Product.
The best part is when you turn the switch "on" and enjoy the moment of creation ;)
