Did you make this? Looks complex to me.

Used to make them years ago and experimented with oddly shaped driftwood too.

Nicely put together. Book him Danno.

It’s a bright idea, but please tell me no books were harmed in the making of this lamp…

Books have many uses besides being read. Impressive wall shelf decs, prop up unbalanced table leg and door stop. Also excellent projectile to heave at neighbor’s cat.

Depending on what is inside. If you use schoolbooks, you will only get a dim light and some contemporary bestsellers will actually DARKEN the room.

Now you’re cookin’ Love it !

Ah, it’s so easy and looks great on my head…
I hope your book worms today do not team up with termites and destroy the project.

Now, that could really come in useful, Carl.

I think decorative bindings, the classic novels are good themes. You can also match a lamp shade with themes like boat illustrated shade with old nautical books as base for example.

Carl, that is so clever…I love your idea.
June 4th, 2012 at 12:16
There are more ideas and I bet there is a lot of Americana stuff where you live to adapt to this idea. Esp nautical.
June 4th, 2012 at 12:33
You are right Carl…believe me, I love your idea.
June 4th, 2012 at 07:31
Does it come in a set with table leg extensions?
June 4th, 2012 at 12:17
Just make them out of more books,
June 4th, 2012 at 09:36
Cool, and a good use for all them books The wife won’t let me get rid of.

See reply to Jannatwrites above.

Practical, and it “lightens” the load of the old bookshelf. Now if you can put a shine on a sneaker that would be impressive..
June 4th, 2012 at 12:19
Old shoes – that would make a great lamp but not sneakers.
I have seen with Dutch wooden clogs.

June 4th, 2012 at 20:28
I love this, Carl! You put is together so well! I guess you do, or did make these as some point and time.
June 4th, 2012 at 23:12

I’m not one to re-tool books, but I can still admire creativity. I can’t imagine using MY books, but I do think that books are destroyed every day. I’d love to see them used with something both decorative and functional! They would be very practical! Debra
June 5th, 2012 at 20:49
Yes the books can still be respected in different ways. I look for ones with old sculpted or embossed binding 50 cents at yard sale or thrift shop. Kinda resurrects them.
June 5th, 2012 at 19:54
Nice. But how am I going to read the books?
Now that’s a writer’s talk alright. Picky, picky, picky.
