Introduction: How to Make a LAMP With Scraps
Here is the Full video on YouTube, it is in spanish but I will try my best to make this instructable easy to understand for you!
You will only need...
-Small piece of wood/plywood
-1/2 in dowel
-Tiny hand plane
Step 1: Cut the Dowel
Cut the dowel about at 9 inches, and make a mark 2in from one of the sides. (Pic 2)
This pencil mark will act as a stop for the plane.
In the other end of the dowel mark a small circle and this will be annother mark for the plane. (Pic 3)
Step 2: Plane
Plane untill you reach the small circle BUT WITHOUT CROSSING THE FIRST REFERENCE LINE
Step 3: Sand & Cut Again
Sand with 80grid and then 125 to soften the marks of the plane and make it round again.
Cut it with a 20° angle on the top of the dowel, to make the legs spread a little, 25° will be fine too.
YOU DONT NEED A TABLE SAW for this, but it will be more accurate for sure...
Step 4: Cut a Circle and Divide It by 3
Cut a 2in circle from the scrap wood of plywood (Plywood worked better for me...)
Drill a few holes for the screws that will hold the legs in place.
Step 5: Assemble
Then you just need to assemble the circle with the 3 legs using screws and glue if you want to
Step 6: Stain and Socket
After some stain (Optional) add the socket and make the electrical connection inside.
Step 7: Finish!
Add some clear finish, in my case I use some wax.
And then you are done!
I really think that almost anyone can make a project like this, you only need a few hand tools and it is fun!
Looks great in the end too!
I hope you enjoyed my instructable and my youtube video!
HASTA LA PRÓXIMA!
