A lamp bought in a store is a mass-produced product. This is the case in many houses. Yes, and the price bites. With some homemade experience, as well as simple, worthless materials, you can make an original lamp that no one else has.
It will take
Instruments: plastic cutting knife, plastic pipes, measuring and marking tools, grinder, drill, hair dryer, external threaded rod and wing nuts, scissors, nail gun, etc.
The process of making an original lamp from plastic bottles and veneer
We cut off the neck and bottom parts of plastic bottles in a circle.
Through a plastic pipe we draw two generators 1 cm apart. We cut the pipe along the generators by inserting a ring of the same diameter into it.
We place circles of plywood into the pipe in the center and edges, fixing it with screws.
We put on the pipe with circles the central part of the bottles. We heat the plastic with a hairdryer until the ring stiffeners are straightened and the pipe fits snugly during heat shrinkage.
We unscrew the screws and remove plywood circles from the pipe. We trim the ends of the central parts of plastic bottles, shifting them to the ends of the pipe, and drawing cut lines along which we cut off the uneven ends of the pipe obtained from the bottles.
We put 5 central parts of plastic bottles on a long plastic pipe. We insert three circles of plywood into the pipe, fixed on the rod with wing nuts, in three places.
We lay the resulting cylinder with the ends of the rod in the slots of the racks of the stand made of plywood. We fasten three strips of veneer of the desired length in the longitudinal direction with adhesive tape.
We cover the back side of the veneer and the cylindrical surface of plastic with glue and glue them together, pressing with a wooden block. Carefully remove the tape from the veneer.
We remove the plastic pipe from the resulting pipe, and cover the surface of the veneer with impregnation for wood, rubbing it with a paper towel.
We glue a small circle of plywood with a sealing ring concentrically to the large one. For a while, we squeeze the circles with a pin and two wing nuts through the holes in the center of the circles.
We strengthen the connection of circles with a nail gun, then remove the stud and wing nuts. We insert a large circle into the end of the pipe made of veneer and plastic so that the small one is inside. We fasten them around the circumference with nails.
Lubricate the outer surface of the plywood circle with glue and press a piece of veneer to it, covering the area of the circle. After a while, cut off the excess veneer around the circumference with a knife. We clean the joints with sandpaper, blow off the dust and cover the end of the pipe with impregnation.
On the second circle of plywood, we install a base flange with a nickel-plated pipe and fasten it with screws. We fix the radial contact of the LED strip to the circle using a bracket with paws and screws.
We wind the tape in a spiral evenly around the nickel-plated pipe to the end and place it in a pipe made of veneer and transparent plastic, including the plywood circle. Opposite the contact of the LED strip, we make a hole in the pipe.
Through the power supply, we apply voltage to the LED strip and get an original lamp that will decorate any room.
