Introduction: Bentwood Bed Legs Tealight Stand
This is a very minimalistic instructable, depending on the ease of manufacture!
Step 1: What You Need
- A saw. Or whatever you prefer to use :-)
- A set of bed legs, obviously. From where? Your local second hand store = a dollar or so. New ones from Ikea = 12 dollar. Or steal from your sibling's bed! ;-)
- Spade drill bit. Make sure you measure the base of the tealight, add 0.3 inch = the size of the spade!
- Drill. I used an old egg whisper. Better would be to use a battery driven one, and best a drill press.
Step 2: Cut the Legs to Prefered Lenght
Do I need to be more precise... ;-)
Step 3: Measure and Drill
Bentwood bed legs has different lenghts, so depending on what dimension YOU aquire, you'll see how many holes will fit best. I got six holes, not to close to each other.
You'll need a certain amount of depth of each hole for the tealight to stand secure. This means there will be a small hole straight through the wood. This wan't matter much, not being visible.
Step 4: Voila!
You're done! Easy, wasn't it!? :-) You may finish the surface with paint or high gloss boat lacquer. Iv'e tried to burn the surface with a gas burner, but it was really hard to get a even result!
