Remember when burning CDs was a thing, and everyone had stacks and stacks of blank CDs stored on spindles? Well, if you still have some of those spindles and no need for the CDs anymore, this easy DIY project turns them into a fun desk or hanging lamp, perfect for your workspace or home office.
The project comes to us from the folks at Hack a Day's new Life.HackaDay page, and the video above does a great job of showing you how to build both types of lamps, the desk style and the hanging style. All you need in both cases is an under-counter LED strip-light, a lot of used CDs, and either some sturdy wire or a nice long rope to make it all work.
The whole process only takes a couple of minutes, and you won't even need any special tools. It's a fast and simple project, the end product doesn't look horrible, and it's a great way to put those spindles of blank or burned CDs you have lying around to good use. Hit the link below for more detail and photos of the finished product all lit up so you can see what it would look like on your desk.
