    Default Homemade Christmas Present

    I was walking down the isles of Home Depot and saw this light (Pic1). Then with some left over half inch square steel and some 1" flat bar I went out to the shop and made a bird bath. That's what I'm calling it.

    The Light cost $30, the steel (if I bought it) cost $4. Made it in 2 hours.

    This is the first project that I drew up in TurboCad and rendered an image of it (Pic 2) to see how it would look.

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    Any comments or comparables post.
    Thank you.

    It looks nice but I don't get it. You paid $30 for the light only to use part of it.

    I get it. I do that all the time. That's probably the cheapest way to get a glass bowl like that. Another good source for project bits are cooking utensils. You can find nice formed SS and aluminum pieces that would be tough to get any other way. Every month or so, I cruise Goodwill.
