Step 1: Tools
for this lamp we need:
- 3/4 mdf wood
- lamp holder
- jigsaw (you can use a saw)
- thin, shape wire
Step 2: Make the Lamp Base
firs you need to measure a square 10cm x 10cm in mdf wood
after measuring the square cut with a jig saw . taking care not to cut your fingers
and will remain a square
Step 3: Sand Corners and Edges
if you want you can sand the corners and edges
to hold the sandpaper i used another block of wood an i was so sure that stay smooth.
Step 4: Bolt the Lampholder
to center the lampholder i measure where the center was and then i bold the lamp holder to wood with a 1 inches screws
Step 5: Make Make Holes for the Wire
i use a drill with a drill bit for drill a hole for pass the power cord from one side towards the center
make a hole too side of laamp holder to half the thickness of the wood
and other hole along the edge of the wood to find the other hole
place the power cord into the hole until it comes out the center and conect the power cord to lampholder.
!!!!!!! and finish the lamp base¡¡¡¡¡¡¡
Step 6: Prepare the Soda Can
for make a soda can you need a thin, sharp wire and a knife for cut the bottom of the can.
in my case i had already cut the bottom and had punctured the can
to pierce the can I follow the design of the brand refresh was also gave shape
and all you need to make is glue stick with the can to the base and connect the power cord to power source.
if you want you can put a switch in power cord
