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!

    I think this is amazing. But I have to admit: The whole concept made we laugh!

    Well done - both for the brilliant execution and cool results AND for the laugh!

    I am totally going to make one of these for my father and his wood pizza oven. Your drill press is also amazing.
