Making a soaring night light

So, you need from wooden slats gently 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 lengths of 25 cm with two lengths of 13 cm. Hold the structure for 3-5 minutes until the glue securely grabs the parts. To accelerate, you can use a hair dryer.

Mark up the stand, which will glue the cube. Here lies the whole focus of the structure: the main part will be shifted relative to the stand. And when the lamp shines, a small base will be almost imperceptible, as a result an interesting effect is created that the lamp hangs in the air, at some distance from the plane.
