Junk is not usually known for its usefulness. That's why it's called junk. If it were called anything else, it might have a purpose, but junk… well… it's junk.
Samimy has, yet again, found a way to recycle a broken, busted up, junk hard drive from a computer, and this time he's teaching you how to make a cool table lamp with it. Not only is it cool, it's decorative, thanks to the repurposed glass vase.
For this homemade, makeshift lamp, you'll need a cheap glass vase, computer hard drive, junk flashlight, wire, plastic rod, wooden circles, DC jack (6V-12V) and a switch.
NOTICE: Watch the second part to this video for an updated version, which makes the design a little more sleek and less clunky, with the switch mounted directly to the hard drive, instead of in a separate wooden box.
