<p>wow, you must have the patience of a saint, excellent skill.</p>
<p>Very neat. I have a big heap of used lightbulbs in my kitchen, I'll be able to create the Spanish Armada :)</p>
This is just amazing! I want one!
That is a great idea!
try doing this with an energy saving bulb... heh, heh, heh...
oh boy! That's funny :D
Challenge Accepted.

COOOOOL project man !!!
where did you find such thick toothpicks? bamboo skewers are too thick and solid for me to poke through it and the toothpicks i have seem too flimsy :(
Yup Moosofa i was having the same exact issue! maybe a smaller needle or something
&nbsp;just make the bamboo skewers smaller. use a knife. i think that would work...
I love this idea<br>I made one of this as a christmas for my mom<br>The only problem was that I had to put glue on the outside and it was white, but I still think it looks good.<br>Thank you for this guide
very interesting
how do you cut the bulb
This is great instructable 4.5/5 My grandfather got a lil bigger all wooden ship in a transparent beer bottle and ship deck is like 2 times as big as hole (maby even more big) and i wonder how that was made :D (i didnt saw any metal things that would hold the poles so im little confused)
I think they actually put the whole thing together inside the bottle with a hook on a stick.
or long tweezers...
or very small hands and arms:-D
or the tiny people that live inside the radio (I'm serioius I hear them talking all the time)
or those tiny people you keep hearing with even smaller arms and yet smaller still tweezers that can push atoms around
there are pills that can help you !
I dont need no sugar pill. i swear there real!!! <strong>BELEIVE ME!!!</strong> (<em>gets taken away by the nice men in white coats</em>)<br/>
Oh the marshmellow men? they give such nice coats as presents.
(<em>sobs</em>) They never give me anything :'( (<em>sob</em>)<br/>
I'm sorry for your loss *pats on back*
(<em>sobs less</em>) at least someone cares (<em>wipes away tears</em>)<br/>
errr yeah... *looks nervously at the "kick me" sign on back*
&nbsp;epic thread :D
Candy!!! Yay!!!
oh my god.... You too? I thought I was the only one... I hear them at department stores talking in code all the time too "Phil code 33, phil code 33" lol...
there annoying me right now. there singing from my computer. they must be really small because my computer has no side on it and I can't see them.
than how the hell would the deck fit in the bottle as I said it lot bigger than the hole and it doesn't seam its made from parts (the deck)
the deck is made of planks I definitly wouldn't have enough patience to put one together (This is easy enough though)
maybe your right idk. But it looks cool :D
&nbsp;how cool is this! most deserved 5stars ever
How cool is that. I am going to display my jewellery in light bulbs. Thanks&nbsp;for the idea&nbsp;Jo
I cant find any blue hot glue. Think candle wax dyed blue could be used for water?
I'm actually almost done with mine, I&nbsp;went ahead and made a cork pirate's ship and it came out great!&nbsp;And I&nbsp;guess I used a pretty cheap lightbulb because all did was heat up the metal bottom with a lighter for a few seconds and the metal slid right off! I'll post up pics once I&nbsp;get it in and get the blue glue for the water! 5 *'s
BE CAREFUL with the "energy saving bulbs"! The gases in them are dangerous if broken!
with the dangerous gases in soe bulbs you should be safe in a well ventilated area as long as you dont huff the gasses there isnt enough to affect you but yea dont open them indoors just to be safe
Where did you get the blue hot glue from? was there other colors as well?<br />
He answered this a few comments down.
&nbsp;the video,t&nbsp;doesn't work<br /> <br />
your work is reeeeeally cooool :D<br /> <br /> i would just like to see a more detailed perspectives of the ship from different views and angles. thanks.<br /> <br />
where do you get different colored glues? craft store?
