what did you use to make the wholes in the glass for the screws to go through it?

I love this. great idea; I wonder, with the light inside it if you could put a dimmer-switch to adjust the lighting.

I held on to one of these for a long time, thinking it was a beautiful thing. Well done for going above and beyond.

Awesome! Super cool looking! I made one of these with an old stainless Electrolux vacuum a few years ago. You can get a really cool effect by filling it with colored bottles. And LEDs won't get as hot.

This is great. The only other uses I've seen for these tubs are pots/garden beds for planting stuff in, and my personal favourite, the backyard fire drum. With all the holes in it, the fire roars and the drum glows red.

backyard fire drum, that's what I did with ours, much better than a oil drum

As long as you dont put plastic wheels on the bottom. I used bricks.

That's very, very cool !

Good job and good example of reuse!
But using a normal socket as a power INPUT an plug as an OUTPUT is farrrrr away form safety :-)
You should better use a computer power socket (like this: and an appropriate power cord (source it form old computer and you will have another reused part)
And this socket you have may remain in it's place and serve as a socket for your laptop etc

Best regards!
