- Plexiglass piece tube (30 cm long and 4 cm diameter)
- Wood glue
- LED garland (yellow)
- LED light adapter
- Wood saw
- Scotch tape
This is the list of equipment needed to make the lamp in the picture, for a wooden log about 40cm. If your piece of wood is larger or smaller, adjust the size of the tube.
1. Locate the materials you need for this craft.
2. Cut the wood log into slices (2 cm minimum) with a wood saw.
3. Find the center of each log slice and make a hole with a drill, use the same diameter as the plexiglass tube.
4. Sand down the surface of each wood slice with sandpaper.
5. Put wood glue on the inside of each hole and let it dry for a day.
6. Varnish each wood slice and let them dry, repeat the operation 2 to 3 times.
7. Cut the plexiglass tube (40 cm) and install the LED garland inside, you can fix it with scotch tape.
8. Install wood slices one by one on the plexiglass tube and fix them with wood glue.
Do not forget to make a slit in the tube and a groove in the latest wood slice (floor side) to make room for the electric wire.
