      Making a soaring nightlight

      So, you need from the wooden slats carefully drunk the following segments:

      • 1.5 x 1.5 cm x 13 cm - 8 pieces.

      • 1.5 x 1.5 cm x 25 cm - 3 pieces.

      • 1.5 x 1.5 cm x 23 cm - 1 piece.

      • 3 x 3 cm x 12 cm - 4 pieces.

      We glue two pieces of 25 cm long with two pieces of 13 cm long. Hold the structure for 3-5 minutes until the glue securely grasps the parts. To accelerate, you can use a hairdryer.

      Next, glue the segments of 23 cm and 25 cm long with two 13 cm pieces.

      Then we glue four parts of 12 cm together. This will be the base of the night light.

      We glue the frames together with four 13 cm pieces. You should get a kind of cube, with two high sides.

      After gluing, it is advisable to load the entire structure with a clamp or weights and leave to dry for 24 hours.

      We drill a hole for the power wire.

      We clean all burrs and burrs with fine-grained emery paper.

      We mark out the stand on which we will stick the cube. This is where the whole focus of the design lies: the main part will be shifted relative to the stand. And when the lamp shines, the small base will be almost imperceptible, as a result, an interesting effect is created that the lamp hangs in the air at a certain distance from the plane.

      Glue and also leave to dry.

      We paint with white paint on wood.

      Pass the wire through the hole made earlier. We collect the cartridge and connect the wire.

      We fix the wire with hot glue.

      Glue the cartridge to the base.

      We cut out the folders into two planes of filters.

      Glue to the sides from the inside.

      We glue the back part with plain paper.

      Cut the legs from any soft or rubber substrate.

      Glue to the bottom of the base.

      The result is such a fun thing.

      Ready night lamp looks very cool! Since there is no partition from below, the light shines down, as a result of which the effect of the square box floating in the air is created.

      Make your simple night light of any color and decorate your room. Thank you for your attention, see you soon.
