When looking at antique lamps remember to not clean them up so much. This is especially true with the brass and sterling lamps. Cleaning them too much devaluates them considerably. On the popular series Antiques Road Show I am always amazed at the person with the 100 year old piece of brass that would have sold for $5,000 but one can of Brass-o later is worth about a buck fifty.
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.
