Step 1: Using Forms to make the base

As always, there are several ways to cast the base. Depending on where it will be used ultimately, select cans of various sizes, for a large base, I use a large coffee can. But smaller cans have their place as well. I decided to use a plastic flower pot as a form in order to make a more attractive post base.
Another great idea C-man. Keep them coming. NIce pool and I like the "Tools" sign in your shop too. I will put to use in the next few weeks on some containers I am starting that will need staking. I was wondering how I was going to do because putting a stake in a container is not that great. Thanks!
I have nearly the same lamp as you, and I think thats an awesome way to mount it.
