Introduction: Retro Style Electric Candle
I wanted to make little different electric candle.. that kind wich we had when i was a kid.
I used old, broken light bulp, piece of pine for the base, and a piece of willow tree for the holder.
Candle is made from the steel pipe, painted to look like a candle. Light bulp is lit up with led.
Step 1: Turning..
I cut the base part from scrap piece of edge glued pine.
Then i turned it with my diy- dremelathe, used sharpen file and dremel high speed cutters as a chisel.
Finally sanded parts with 800 grit paper. And then glued them together.
Step 2: Assembling..
Made a little room for the bottom with my diy dremel router and high speed cutters, for the battery and on / off switch. It, and the led is taken from commercial electric tea light, it costed 2 euros, so there was no reason to make it by myself.
Video shows the whole process.
