Another “recycle” project – $10 drum stand with a post that I turned on the lathe from some scrap wood. Quick, easy, and fun as always! It was a nice addition to our music room. You may have to actually open the pictures to see the full lamp.

A man of my own heart! I love adding wooden components and making something unique out of nothing. Very well done!

That’s really cool. Nice recycle with the drum stand. Did you wire the off-on switch to the foot peddle?

That looks more like a high hat cymbal stand,(also known as a top hat, or sock hat) but it is a great recycle, good looking lamp, and it should be sturdy. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks everyone!
-Oldtool – I wish I could say the off-on switch was wired to the peddle-I’ve had so many people ask that! But no, it’s just a switch on the light socket up by the bulb.
-Bluepine38 – Yes it actually is a high hat stand – you must be/know a drummer :) I figured I would keep the description simple to not confuse the non-drummer-types :)
