Intro: Glowing Bread Lamp
Take a regular piece of bread and turn it into a lamp! Impress all your friends! Be the talk of the town! Envied by all!
Step 1: Prepare Thy Bread
Take your bread and cut the bottom off.
Step 2: Gut the Bread
Using a rotary tool, carve out the inside of the bread, leaving a thin shell. You can hold it up to a light to see if you're getting too close to poking through.
Step 3: Entomb the Bread
Build a little stage and seal the bread using shellac. Inside and out. Enjoy some music as you do.
Step 4: Make a Base
Draw a base pattern around your bread. Cut it out of your choice of wood. Round over the edges, sand, seal.
Step 5: Light It Up!
Using your trusty drill press, drill a hole for the LED strip to go through. Stick the LED strip to the board and add rubber bumpers if necessary.
Step 6: Bread Adhesion
Glue your bread down on top of the LED strip and plug it in.
Step 7: Bask
Just look at that wonderful glowing grain!
