Tree Transformation # 2


Upcycle your chopped tree into a rustic design lamp.

Use a slice of wood for the base.


The copper along with the wooden slice makes the lamp look very robustic. Due to corrosion the copper will turn green after some time, and makes your lamp kind of alive.

Then make a stand from copper pipes. Use compression fittings to make the angles. They’re quick and easy to use, and require no special tools.

 To make it look even more masculine use a cord from an old electric razor.

Tree Transformation # 1

When we moved in here there was a tree next to our house just reaching the roofgutter. Last year, about ten years later, it was almost 32 feet (10 metres) above that gutter and way above our roof. Although we made a lot of Christmas bouquets of it, the tree took away too much sunlight and since our garden isn’t that big we decided to chop it down.

To keep the memory of the tree alive we made a few small tables of it which can be used outdoors. The tablelegs are made of iron. Some look very delicate and fragile and some robustic and medeviel.



So if you also have a tree that has to be chopped for whatever reason, and you’re secretly a bit emotionally attached to it, this might be an idea !
