I have found problems with having light bulbs in an airtight container like that. The bulbs burn out quite rapidly due to the excessive heat build up. I made this kind of thing with mason jars and the bulbs only lasted 1/4 of the time they should have. After experimenting with different bulbs and wattages. I found that if i drilled several holes in the glass the bulbs lasted a long time. Even cutting the top off completely solves the problem too.
You got my vote. This is a project most people could do with no extra special tools. You described the process nicely and it looks beautiful when finished. Its not overly simple or overly difficult. I think this is something that should be considered when choosing winners. Good Luck!!!
I'm relatively new to how this site works, so I don't know if there is that inner circle problem like other places. I hope not. But time will tell. I have been crafting items for eons and know a good thing when I see it. This is completely off topic but I see you are from India. My son is in college and visited Mumbai this past summer as part of a engineering internship. He was there a week and then they were in Beijing for 2 months. He said India was beautiful. I have no idea if your area of India is like Mumbai. but if it is, congrats on living is such a beautiful place. Talk soon
I love this project. Your glass tumbler takes the cake. Finally something I can use that $1000 treadmill for that's more useful than hanging clothes from. :) You get my vote. Very Very nice!
One question, whats the slurry in the glass tumbler. I see you mentioned, but didn't see where you explained what that is.:)

Yes, thank you. You need to make sure they are stuck to the shade really well before painting.

Very nice.PS Don't let wife put in the dishwasher! LOL
How visible is the glue line?
Shrink Ray!? I went and bought a wood chipper, thinking that was surely the solution.
This would be a problem with OCD. The idea of mouse traps having food on them freaks me out. I know they are new and completely sanitary. My mind is thinking dead mouse and I just can't past it. Your idea is really cool, and I'm sure a lot of people will like it. I even use disposable plastic knife to put peanut butter on a new trap. I never use a trap over. I throw the whole thing away. I know OCD!!! LOL nice project. You did a nice job.
Anyone who does a lot of sanding will find this very convenient. I have mine paper in a small tote. So you have to root through it until you find the grit you need. Never fails the kind you need is just run out. Thanks. I will make this for my shop.
As a former photographer, your set up looks just fine. The key to the success of this is the amount of light you are producing. Using two incandescent bulbs at 100 watt each the heat would be unbearable relatively quickly. However, with the newer fluorescent versions the heat is minimal and they use much less electricity. The nice thing also is that smart phones like the I-phone make a very nice photo even in low light. They auto-correct for color temp errors nicely. For example in a camera that does not correct the color fluorescent lights would look somewhat green. But overall nice job.
This looks great, but if you wanna keep your fire insurance this should be outside.
That's a regular field mouse, not a pet? If so that's just amazing. The little guy is so cute. I'd keep them all as my little friends. GREAT TRAP! VOTE UP!
These are amazing. Now just build a model of a rocket and you already have the thrusters. All this stuff would have gone into the dump or burned. Good for you keeping the landfills a little less filled!!
