hey guys I'm cleaning with DIY creatives and today I'm going to be making version 2 of the do-it-yourself concreting them and this one was a request from the audience I also want to thank audio blog for sponsoring this video they have one of the largest stock audio library online with over a hundred thousand stock audio clips loops music sound effects and I also have a link down in the video description for a 7-day free trial this lamp is a bit larger than the one I previously made this one stand at around 30 inches tall in about 7 inches in diameter I did put a bit of a twist to this one so stay tuned and I'll show you just how I made it to get started I'm going to take a piece of packing foam form that into the shape of a cup tape it and then cut out a circle attach it to the bottom and this should be housed inside the concrete form the next step I'm going to cut out a foam to fit inside the cylinder secure it in place I'm going to use hot glue get it inside and once the hot glue cools down then I'm going to add a glue along the top and that should create a tight seal you may have to shop around the final base to speak I find mine at the local hobby store and this one measures around 24 inches in length with a 7 inch diameter now I'm going to trace the thickness of the base then I'm a draw a second line of how thick I want the concrete to sit inside the base this piece is around 2 inches and the bottom will be around 5 inches I'm using a metal flashing which you can pick this up at your local hardware store and I'm going to take that tape it around the outside of the base to shrink the inside of the concrete form I'm going to use a one-inch waterproofing steel and this should go around the inner part of the metal flashing wrap a string around the base and what a two line intersect that will be the circumference of your circle next you'll place the rubber seal along the line that was drawn inside the flashing but first we need to find a distance around it but if for some reason you can't find a string and all you know is math then you can times the diameter of the circle which is seven inches in this case and then you can times that time 3.14 and that will give you a distance around the circle and this is what it should look like after the first one but I'm going to apply a second one to make a stick two inches line next I'm going to take a piece of aluminum foil and trace out the outside of the vase place the foam in the center and hot glue that down the reason I trace this base onto the aluminum foil is to hold the metal flashing being that it's flimsy I'm going to need that circle to help me line it up next apply hot glue to one side and hold it in place while it cool do the same thing on the opposite side and do it on four side until it's sitting at a perfect circle then trace it all the way around with the hot glue next it's time to mix the cement and any cement should work mixing the cement is pretty simple all you need to do is apply a little water and mix the cement you don't want it to water and you don't want it to stick just follow the instruction on the back of the bag and that should get you a result pretty close to there use the hand shovel to place the cement inside the form and make sure you work it all the way around just make small portions at a time and just try to keep it consistent as possible I filled the form up still about a half inch below the top rim the one positive about this metal flashing it makes it very easy to vibrate the form and you can shake it and squish it and do whatever it takes to get the bubbles out the more bubbles you relief from the forms the smoother your form will be and with about four days of sitting I'm now going to remove the form from the concrete I really like the concrete look but if you're not into the concrete looking you want to paint it then it's best to wait 28 days before you paint the concrete doing so will allow the country to breathe and get to its maximum strength now as I was removing the rubber stripping I realized I should have probably added tape between the two pieces of rubber stripping and that would avoid it this line going around but it's not a big deal I'm just going to break it off and send it down the best I can look at that the face of it just right now remove the aluminum foil from the bottom and as you can see the inside looks pretty clean being that the base fits perfectly I'm not going to waste too much time standing this area down trying to get it smooth I'm just going to clean it up a bit so that it looks more presentable my neighbor cut down the oak tree in the backyard and I decided I'm going to pick up a few of these branches because I know I'm going to use these in a project and here we are so the branches are pretty dry I broke one just to check they've been sitting around for about two months now apply some black paint and allow enough time for the paint to dry and using a masonry bit I'm going to drill a 1/2 inch hole going all the way down to the opening in the bottom now place the branch in the hole and if it's too tight just take the bit and just wobble to hold out a little more because you need to be able to run the LED through the hole as well now place the glass on top of the branch just to make sure you have all the clearance going around because when you start adding LEDs this be trouble if you need to remove the glass again using the masonry bit I'm going to drill out a small pilot hole then I jump over to a much larger bit so that I can drill out a bigger hole and within this hole I'm going to place the power plug and once the power plug is passed through I'm going to take some hot glue plug the hole push the plug back in and then run some bead of glue around the outside tape up the LED power plug to prevent any dust from getting through then pass it down to the bottom then connect that to the LED power controller while I'm stuffing the LED into the base I'm going to take a few seconds to tell you about audio block royalty free stock audio service being a content creator adding music sound effect is important for all online service such as YouTube podcasts and even still making projects all membership come with 100% royalty-free agreements sign up today at audio blog.com ford slash youtube or click the link in the video description to

audio from audio blocks and we're back to the video the felt pad I had was not big enough to cover the entire bottom so I just cut a circle and place that in the center and here you have it the finished product so the cool thing about this lamp is the previous lamp I made before had an infrared receiver this one is a radio frequency so as long as you're in the vicinity of the light you don't even have to point it it would still turn it on and off so as you can see I'm approximately 50 feet away and I can still turn the lights on and off I'm probably going to make this one stay on my front porch or I may make a second one to put them both on my back porch I love the way this map came out I think it's good enough for accent lighting the other left did really well and I hope we can top that one with this one so if you guys liked this project I'd love to see 10,000 likes on this one and don't forget to put your request in I make it around to your project and you can also see your

    To get the bubbles out, use the sander with no sandpaper around the outside of the form.
