Transformations are great!!!

In this case a simple recycled brick can become a light or a river rock can become a candle holder!!!

Lots of possibilities from found materials...

Step 1: You will need..

Tool wise you will need a diamond cutter. I used a 10 inch wet saw with a continuous blade since it was only a brick.

Cutting concrete or stone you will need a segmented blade.

RotoZip tools have a dry diamond blade which could work for your material.

A hammer drill with the correct bit will be needed for the lamp column.
Very nice! Now I just need to find some bricks... Although, living just outside Detroit, that shouldn't be hard :-( <br> <br>Also, when you've inserted the electric light into the base section I would recommend a squirt of some kid of sealant around the lamp where the lamp's body meets the brick... <br> <br>...or where the rubber meets the road... <br> <br>... or where the bullet meets the bone... (bonus points if you name the artist &amp; song. No Google allowed :-D )
nice idea
I can't believe that you made the good ole house brick this attractive. <br> <br>Well played sir!
Very nice transformation!
wow, awesome !!! I wished I had a diamond cutter !!!<br>It's simple and special at the same time: my favorites :-)
Thanks. You can typically find used cutters on kijiji. I paid only $250 for this one and it was brand new!
Freaking awesome! Nice job, 5 stars!
Thanks, that is exactly what I was aiming for.
if you were to take one of those crystal making kits and use it on the inside of a hollow stone before doing this it would look really cool i think.
It sounds like you are trying to make a geode... Try it, I would like to know it it works...
I like the rock the best thats really cool.<br><br>What dis you use to make the round discs on the river rock?
I used a dry diamond coring bit made by Bosch. The rock takes a long time to core. The brick takes seconds...
That is an awesomely &quot;simple&quot; project! Stone/brick cutting saws can be rented from most big-box home improvement stores, so you don't even have to invest in one. Very nicely documented.
