Thats realy a great idea. Better than sitting in a closet somewhere collecting dust.

That's gorgeous.  I would love to have that in my home.

Great idea! Any hints/suggestions for doing that? My clarinet has been sitting in my closet for maybe 9 years...I doubt I'll ever play it again...but hard to just give it away as well....

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.

this is the most awesome lamp I have ever seen! Sorry I missed the vote or I certainly would have voted for you!

love laugh create!

so neat! i showed my mom this post, and the first words out of her mouth were "no, you may absolutely not." heheh. i played clarinet in elm. school and junior high, and would LOVE to re-purpose into a lamp since it's getting no other use!
anyways, i love it! the lamp shade looks like a perfect match, with details and such.
i wish i had known, i definitely would have voted also! nevertheless, i think it's fabulous!

That's really neat!
I play clarinet, so I can definitely appreciate this, although the thought of turning one of my clarinets into a lamp makes me cringe-but then again I still play on an almost-daily basis.
Beautiful job.
Now you just need some old-tommy light-posts and some jazz posters and you'd have a New Orleans-themed room! Wink
