Introduction: Pallet CUP Lamp

A simple wood box with cups and bulbs. Pretty awesome

Step 1: The Box

I found this wooden frame so I just cut them and sand them to make this 5 faces boxes.

Step 2: Stain

I used this stain called CAOBILLA, or wengue or dark chocolate (this is how the client want it)

Step 3: Cups

I have a dremel so I took a diamond head bit and made a hole in a plate and in the cup. It's pretty hard but with patience it's good. Also I need it 2 bits, also 2 sockets an cable

Step 4: Final

I really hate electrical connections but this was really simple.

They were super light and easy to install

A really cool idea! I would like to do this one day, my question is what are the cups and saucers made of that they didn't break?

mmmm my client gave me the cups... but it was normal cups and plate ... ceramic .... the trick is to use a diamond head bit on the dremel or drill and cut it under the water ;)
