YES.

My inspiration, of course, being the subheading of the Home Sweet Home Reconstructed board. I've been wanting to do this for years. We gutted the bottom part and took out the motor and all the electric stuff is hidden inside. My dad did all the wiring, I pretty much just did the idea part haha.

LOL that's great.  Was your dad able to wire it so one of the blender buttons turns the light off and on?

Ahh I wish. I suggested it and he looked at me like he wanted to cry... it was kind of a tough project. It turns on with a silver toggle switch on the side, you can see it in the pictures.
