DIY: Lamp base

Components used for this project include an E14 lamphoder for lampshade, all thread with a nut and a washer in a colour that suits the size of the hole opening..

Secure the washer to the lampholder by using 10mm all thread and securing at the base with a nut. In this instance the washer will be glued to the ceramic vase. A shade may be added to this set up with the shade rings.

This ceramic vase has had a hole drilled at its base to allow the cable to be trailed out from below. Add a plug and a swtich to complete your project. We recommend 2m of cable from the base of the lamp to the wall.
