Nice job, Here is another one posted a while ago..&lt;br/&gt;<a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Light-Bulb-Vase/">http://www.instructables.com/id/Light-Bulb-Vase/</a>&lt;br/&gt;<br/>
That link redirects to this instructable...
No, it redirects to my instructable I'm fairly sure! They are very similar, so its easy to be confused.
It used to, I swear... I must have been hallucinating.
Thanks! That vase instructable looks pretty good. Too bad I didn't have any good wood.
I actually carved a bulb stand out of a piece of wood with an exacto-knife and just started the decorative carving when my sister's dog stole it off the table and ate it. Then my bulb disappeared.
Thank you for commenting on my instructable! I should try carving a stand out of wood with exacto knives. Thanks for the advice.
If you do try it be sure to get some sandpaper and a second block of wood. The exacto method can be kind of inexact. It can leave a kind of scalloped surface. But a quick go with a sanding block makes it smooth much quicker than a slow shaving
