Introduction: Bamboo Nightlight.
This is a fun and fast project! The materials needed are very inexpensive. If you have your own outdoor bamboo plant you'll know there are always extra stalks for projects.
*a drill or drill press
*a pack of drill bits
*a step bit
*a hand saw
Step 1: Cutting the Bamboo.
Cut the bamboo to length with any saw you wish to use. i used a hand saw. The knuckle should be about 1 inch from the bottom cut.
Step 2: Drilling and More Drilling.
I used the drill press and different sized bits to create designs. I used one of the larger bits to drill a hole in the side of the bottom for the cord. I used a hand drill and a step drill bit to drill the hole in the bottom for the clip light. Check to see if the light fits in the bottom hole.
Step 3: Finishing Touches.
Smooth the outside and the inside.
I cut the top at an angle on a table saw. Insert light and plug in!
