Introduction: Violin Lamp

Picture of Violin Lamp

Hi, this is my first "instructable". I had an old Cina violin bought on internet, and my father wanted to put in the trash, and same thing for an old lamp. So I decided to make a VIOLIN LAMP ! It simple to do, I could put no step, because you only have to make an hole in a violin and put a light into, but finally, I put 4 little step !

Ps: Sorry for my english I'm french :-)

Step 1: What Do You Need?

You will need only two things:

-A "cheap" violin. (You can find on ebay)

-A lamp that you wanted to throw.

Step 2: Take Only What You Need

Take only what you need of the lamp: The switcher, the wire and the bulb. It depends of what kind of lamp you use.

Step 3: The Hook

Add a little hook on the top of the violin, like this, you can hang your violin !

Step 4: Assembling !

Make an hole on the bottom of the violin, (I didn't take a pic of the hole because mine was horrible ! ) and put your lamp inside.

Congratulation, you have now a beautiful VIOLIN LAMP !!

Thanks :) !! I tried to enter in the contest but it doesn't work (but I'm new so maybe I did something wrong :/, I will wait)

I see it is accepted in the contest :) All the best.

Also, you should post a picture of the back, even if you don't think it looks very nice. How did you make the hole?

Thank you ! The back is really ugly, but I will try to fix it and show it :) I did with a drill I know this is strange but when I did, I didn't have the adequate tools.

It would still be helpful for other people who also only have a drill. Right now, that's actually the only power tool I have at my house! haha

Wow, this is gorgeous! Great job!
