Tell us about yourself!
Even though my final lamp turned out looking very different from your lamp. I used your design and instructions as my inspiration. Your pictures and instructions were extremely helpful.
Thanks for the project. I made one. Single layer of pallet wood, edged in leather and an aluminum metal band. 32 inches in diameter. Weighs in at 10 lbs. I call mine an interpretation of a Game of Thrones Targaryen shield. Seemed more topical than a Viking shield.
I added a cap. I think this is an improvement. Makes it quieter. Here's a picture.
Similar to another person who built this project I ran the power through the base and routed a slot for the cord. I think this way gives a cleaner look instead of going through the side of the bottom pipe. Another advantage is that you can access the light bulb by simply removing the four lag bolts. Hopefully that won't be needed because I used an led bulb.
I used 300 ml glycerin and 300 ml water. Not sure if it made a difference.
Great project. I'll probably add a cap to the top pipe, the pump is a little loud. I appreciate the project. Instructions were excellent.
Thank you for the instructable.
I made this. Modified the design slightly to recess the table tops. Eliminated the pins. The table tops were painted hammered copper and the rest was stained a cedar color. Hard to see the differences. I thought the contrast would be greater. Coated the entire table in three coats of polyurethane. Added red led strip lights. The one thing with pallet wood is you have to be comfortable with things not being square (unless you use a planer/joiner).
