(1) an Ikea Fado table lamp with a compact fluorescent bulb
(2) an Ikea Fornbro pedestal table
(3) a suitable lampshade
A Phillips-head screwdriver.
Step 1: Build the table support and place the globe on it.
The globe has a cord with a toggle switch that runs out of the bottom of it. It's pretty discreet and is hard to see in this picture. If anyone was interested in making this without a shade, there are a couple things to notice: First, the globe has little feet that make it an imperfect sphere. Second, the table support has some holes drilled into it for attaching the top. Of course, they could be filled with putty or covered somehow.
