I run into this LEDBERG string light at the store the other day and bought two without knowing exactly what to do with them, but I already use one set to get some ambiance light behind my tv, and later I used the other one for a cool looking LED desk lamp. So here it is.

Step 1: Materials and tools

I recycle a lot of discarded materials, I had an old base for a desk lamp laying around waiting to be reuse, this was an excellent chance to put it to a good use.
I use a leg from a cheap aluminum tripod, (a "C" channel aluminum profile will do the work too)
Of course the only expense, the LEDBERG from Ikea for $12.00.
Double Side tape
Small saw or dremel tool (to cut the channel)
Drill and bits
Screws and nuts.

<p>Nice looking lamp! Could you tell me what the width of the LEDBERG LED's are? I am planning on making the same thing but with common 3/8&quot; width aluminum channel from the hardware store. I didn't want to order that LEDBERG from ikea and find out it won't fit in the 3/8&quot; width channel... Thanks!</p>
