Copper Trumpet Lamp

image

 

I made this lamp out of a long, copper trumpet… obviously.  The base is a cigar box, but I filled it with the heaviest nuts and washers I could find in my workshop, filling it from side to side, top to bottom, to make it as heavy as possible to give stability to the lamp.  I affixed all the metal scrap in place with silicon glue.  Then, I drilled holes in the top and back of the box for the plug wire, ran the wire through, and sealed the box FOREVER with super duper glue.

Next, I ran the wire through the trumped and affixed the bell of the trumpet to the box with silicon glue and copper screws.  The shade is made from a hat box I got for $5 at Hobby Lobby.
