This is made from the clarinet I learned to play on.  Its a really old wooden one and now it doesn't make a sound, but I couldn't part with it.  The wood for the base was repurposed from an old desk.  Its painted black with silver edging.  The shade was given to me as a gift specifically for this project.  It uses night light sized bulbs.  This is by far my favorite project yet because of the sentimental value it holds.

I LOVE this! It looks so professional, and the details of the lampshade go perfectly with the clarinet!

I jsut have to say it all goes together very well. I love the shade, and the base, and the fact that it's sentimental is awesome. Smiley

Beautiful.

The clarinet kind of looks like it is hiding and trying to be obscure.  It makes me laugh the think about.  But it came out beautiful
