My first instructable ...
(and you might have to excuse my spelling etc. - I'm danish and it's been a long time since I wrote anything in English.)
Well, there is barely a need for instructions in this instructable. Primarily I just wanted to share this extremely simple idea.
I thought it would be fun to build something from Lego - but not a model of something, like you normally use Lego for - I wanted something like a real thing, I could use. But until now, I couldn't think of anything, that I would like to both build and use.
The vase I build, didn't hold water, so I will seal the inside with some paint or just find a glass or other container, that fits in. I use a plastic bag for now and it works fine.
If you build a vase, it might hold water. My Lego-blocks are like 30 years old, and that might make a difference.
If you seal it with something transparent, you might want to consider to use some transparent Lego-blocks too - for an underwater view :)
Any other ideas?
If you have any other ideas for usable real not-model things build from Lego you are welcome to share them here. I have seen very few of these kind of things.
If you want a knife block or knife stand for kitchen knives, that would probably be easy to build and look good. And Boxes and other storage stuff (like the vase) is obvious - but for now I don't have any specific storage stuff idea, that I really like.
I'm thinking I will build a lamp next - I was inspired by all the transparent blocks, when I went over my old Lego just now :)
