About: I am IT professional, living in Bangalore, India. As new gadgets come out everyday, we indulge in spending significant time and money on these gadgets. And our kids are learning from us, they know how to use...

Hi All,

I like to reuse and recycle things around me. This lamp is made using recycling a soya sauce bottle and scrap plywood from my other projects

I usually save things to make something out of them .. some day...

Hope you like this

Step 1: What Do You Need ?

Material

  • Scarp plywood
  • Copper LED stri light with battery
  • Empty glass bottle
  • Brown Acrylic paint
  • Fevicol / PVA glue

Tools

  • Hand saw
  • Jigsaw
  • Sandpaper 80 grit and 220 grit

Step 2: Wood Cutting

  • Based on the bottle and t's dimensions, the wood need to be cut as shown
  • I am sharing dimensions as per the pictures
  • Cut each piece as show
  • Since I used plywood, while cutting the pieces came off, so I had to glue them together
  • I am using threads to clamp the pieces together and leave for 8 hours
  • Now using saw dust and PVA glue ( fevicol) fill in all the holes and leave to dry for 8 hrs
  • Sand all piece with 220 grit sandpaper
  • Paint all wood using brown acrylic paint

Step 3: Glass Bottle Etching

Glass bottle needs to be etched or frosted, there are frosting chemicals available, but even after 24hrs of soking the bottle in the etching cemical, I did not like the results. So decided to hand sand using a wet 220 grit sandpaper

Caution : Sanding glass will fill air with fine glass particles. Use Eyes and breathing protection

I soaked the bottle in water while standing and then flushed the water in toilet

Step 4: Assembly

  • Fill the bottle with the LED string lights
  • Fix the wooden pieces as a jigsaw puzzle
  • Place bottle on the deer

DIm the room lights to enjoy your creation
