Intro: DIY CORK LAMP
This small lamp made out of a wine cork, is surprisingly resistant (it works even after I dropped it from a height of 40 meters). If you add some glue on the switch, the lamp can even go under the water. So let's build it!
Step 1: Watch the Video
You can share it if you want :P https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZgER00sQoQ
Step 2: What You Will Need
The materials that you need are:
a wine cork
a momentary push switch
The tools that you need are:
a soldering iron
drill bits (a smaller and a larger one)
Step 3: Cut Some Holes for the Light
Cut 4 holes in the upper part of the cork as shown in the video (and the pictures).
Step 4: Drilling
Drilll a hole with a smal diameter in the cork, so, that it reaches the center of the 4 holes part. After that, drill a bigger hole in the other part of the cork, to make place for the electronic cirquit.
Step 5: The Soldering Part
Insert a LED into the 4 holes part so, that his legs are in the electronics cirquit part. After that, cut a hole to the side of the cork to insert the switch. Connect the switch to the LED and connect to batteries between the other leg of the led and the other leg of the switch.
Step 6: The Closing of the Lamp and Being Happy of the Success!
Fill the rest of the lamp with glue and close it with a small piece of cork. Congratulations, you just made a cool survival lamp. Now, let's go outside to test it out!
