Step 1: Recycling

Recycling a metal fuel carrier into a beautiful lamp , if you do try to make then using an Edison bulb really make it look superb.
Be careful when cutting can as the edge is sharp so I suggest grinding or filing edge to ensure safety first .
The flame grill is made from a coffee tin with images sanded off.
And the ignite wheel is wood shaped and painted.
Have fun.
