I decided to try to make these bowls and incorporate them into my old lamp. I have never posted on this site or altered a lamp before this. Here is what I did, hopefully someone can find it useful in their creative processes.
Step 1: Tools
Step 2: Melt Records
y, my lamp just twisted apart into three sections, I decided to shorten the lamp by one section and put in two vinyl record shelves. After cutting the wire near the top of the lamp and dissambeling the lamp, I used a drill to widen the holes in the records until I could screw the record onto the pieces of the lamp. This isn't a safe or recomended method, but it worked.
Step 3: Assemble the lamp
I also had a problem with turning three sections into two. To fix this, I had to use a wrench to remove the inner fitting of one section, and then use the wrench to screw it into the other section.
