Rustic Table Lamps from Rustic Source Crypto Coins
The rustic tables are an elegant way to add a little rustic charm to your home.
These table lamps can be made from any type of wood or metal.
You can even use a metal shelf, but it’s always best to choose a solid metal table lamp to make your table lamps look even more beautiful.
You will need: 1 metal shelf 1 large metal table table lamp 1 wood plank (such as a piece of wood that is flat, not rounded) 1 wire (like a standard length of wire or a wire that’s shorter than a human hair) To assemble the rustic lights: Cut your table lamp up to fit your desired size.
The pieces that make up the lamp will form a ring around the lamp, so you’ll need to use a piece that is at least as long as the lamp.
Measure the wire length (the length of the wire that connects to the table lamp) and use that to determine the length of your wire.
For example, if the wire is 2 feet long, the length will be 4 feet.
If you need a longer wire, use the length that matches the length you cut your lamp into.
You’ll need the wire for the base of the lamp and for the lamp itself.
Measure and cut the wire (either the base or the lamp) to match your size and shape.
If the lamp is too short, you’ll also need to cut a small hole in the center of the base to hold it in place.
Using wire, attach the lamp to the base.
If using a piece, attach it to the piece with a nail or screwdriver.
If not, you can use a thin piece of wire that has a hole in it.
If your lamp has a handle, attach that to the handle as well.
Cut out a piece from the metal piece that holds the lamp on.
For this example, I used a piece made from a wood plank, but you can also use wood that’s sturdy and not brittle.
The piece should be about 2 inches in diameter.
Cut the metal base piece in half, making sure that it’s about 1.5 inches in height.
Mark where the end of the wood base piece joins the wood piece.
The center of that wood piece should fit into the center hole of the metal lamp.
Drill the hole in your wood base to allow the lamp’s wire to attach.
To attach the metal lamps to the metal table, drill a small 2.5-inch hole in each end of each metal lamp, using the wire to join the two pieces together.
Attach the lamp base to the end.
For these examples, I attached the lamp with a wire to the center and the metal to the bottom.
To assemble your rustic lamp, mark where you want the lamp bases to be.
Place a piece on each end and make sure it’s square.
Connect each base piece to the other with wire.
You should have 2 bases.
Attaching the lamps to your table is a simple process, as long the lamp sticks to the wood as shown in the diagram.
Attached lamp bases are also available in a variety of sizes.
I like to use 6-foot-long, 6-inch-wide lamp bases.
If I use 8-foot lamps, I usually cut them into 12-foot lengths.
You could also make an 8-inch lamp base and attach it in the same way.
For larger wood tables, I use 1-foot tall, 5-inch wide lamp bases, and I cut them in the shape of a circle.
If my lamp bases don’t fit on the metal, I can use two lengths of wire to hold them in place and then drill a 2.25-inch deep hole in a piece the same size as the base you’re using.
The base should be 3/4 inch thick and 2-inches wide.
The lamp base should sit flush against the table surface.
If there’s an air gap between the base and the table, the lamp won’t stick to the surface.
To connect the base, connect the wire from the lamp top to the lamp bottom using a small nail.
Attachment of the table is easy.
Connect the lamp from the base base to one end of a metal lamp (or the lamp as shown).
For this table lamp, I placed the lamp at the bottom and attached the base with a long piece of cable.
Connect a piece along one of the two ends to a piece at the other end.
I used the small nail that I drilled into the base for this base, but any nail will work.
Attaches to the top of the piece that connects the lamp up the wire.
Attests to the ease of assembling your rustics.
