Introduction: Plywood Reading Lamp

Picture of Plywood Reading Lamp

Even considered making a reading lamp out of a small piece of plywood? If not yet, do now!

Way too easy, and goodlooking enough. And with cleaner cuts than mine, it coul easily look even fancier....

But as I use to say, hand made is always fancy enough...

You 'll need:

-A piece of plywood apparently!

-A drill

-A lamp hat(i think you can find one in the closest dollar store)

-Some epoxy(otional)

-A cable along with a socket to plug it on the wall and a lamp!

It would be better though to use a lampholder instead of soldering the lamp as I did , temporarily i promise!

Ready??

Let's have a look at the video above!

This is a great idea! I have a variety of small plywood cutoffs of various thicknesses. I also have two daughters who just bought new homes and need housewarming gifts.
just one question: How is the stability? Is there enough weight towards the bottom so as to not need a larger base?
Again, great job!

I'm glad you like it! It' s preety stable if you allign the pieces!There s no need for a larger base in my case..then again,it might look even better with that base!(I was using an ios app mosty for instractables and i didnt know you could directly reply to comments through the web page.sorry for that!)
