Put your carpentry skills to use and build yourself a sleek and stylish floor lamp! To make this fun design, you’ll need a lighting kit, pine boards, a wood plank, assorted hardware, and familiarity with a circular saw. Trim the boards and fit three together to create each of the tripod legs. Cut the plank into a triangular shape with a rectangular tab at each corner, and screw one leg onto each tab. Drill a hole through the plank, run the lighting kit through it, then top with a wood veneer-look shade or a lamp shade of your choice.
