Introduction: DIY Table and Lamp (from Old Audio Tapes)
I had loads of old audio tapes and my mother thought of throwing it out.
At an individual level, I thought of what I could do and decided to make a table out of it. It was a need too!
And this is where I ended up. Making a table out of audio tape and then fixing light to it.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Joining the Tapes
Initially, I was in a fix as to how I would join the tapes together. I tried using silicone tubes but the tapes broke.
Then, I decided to use m-seal an adhesive to fix pipes. That helped and the tapes were firmly fixed. I used to generously though.
Step 2: Adding Light to the Table
After securing the base, I slowly started adding the tapes to construct the table.
Initially, I only planned to make a table, but then I went one step ahead. I made the table top removable. So, I had an old unused broken lamp and I used that to fix light inside the table.
So, it works multipurpose. I can use it for storage, as light or as table or all in one.
If you want it to be mobile, you can use wheels at the bottom of the table.
It took me a month to complete this.
