Because making a lamp is actually quite simple, you won't really need too many tools. Basically, you'll require a screwdriver, a pair of pliers, and possibly a drill. You'll also need to choose something to use as the base for your lamp, such as a wine bottle, canning jar, or pottery jug. You'll also need a lamp kit, which will make things especially easy. You could also purchase the wiring components separately. In this case, you would need a threaded hollow rod of the appropriate height for your base, a socket and cord, an electric plug, and brass sheath. However, if you've never tried making a lamp before, using a kit is probably the best option. You will also need a lamp harp, a lamp shade, and a light bulb. Depending on the base you choose, you may also need some silicone adhesive.
Creating the lamp base is probably the most enjoyable part of the lamp making process. If you've chosen a clear container such as a wine bottle or canning jar, you can fill it with decorative materials. Marbles, pebbles, sand art, seashells, dried beans or buttons would all be good choices. Heavier materials will help to add weight to the lamp base, making it more stable. If you've chosen an opaque container, you can fill it with pebbles, sand, lead weights, coins or other heavy materials. If you are using a lamp kit which is designed to simply plug into the base, you can fill it before wiring it. However, if you are using individual components you may need to do the wiring step before filling the base.
However, don't expect it to have all the qualities of a real antique lamp but then it doesn't boast to have them either. It's just a fancy handcrafted lamp in a reasonable price. This glass table lamp can hold two bulbs at a time and they can be lit together as well as one at a time, which is good in you want to save energy or need less light at times. Overall, it's a nice lamp at a fair price.
You can have a clear glass table lamp in the shape of an urn or perhaps a modern one that is shaped like a geometrical pattern such as a pyramid, for example. So many table lamps and we have not even gotten to colored glass yet!
