    So I could use some help on a project I am trying to take on. I have a few Woodford Reserve bottles I've been hanging on to and I would like to make lights out of them like this.

    I know what the light bulb is but I am having a hard time figuring out what they used as the light fixture and how they did that part of it.

    Here is a photo of the hardware.

    Clearly they drilled a hole through the cap and cork but I need to know what that hardware is connected to the top where the bulb goes in and how to go about doing that. We have some super talented folks on here and I thought I would reach out to you guys to pick your brains. Any help would be great! Thanks!

    At first glance, I'd guess to use a lamp kit with a socket that is small enough to fit in the bottle. The socket might be disassembled and uses the cork for the body. They make a lot of kits for bottles, where the bottle is the base and the bulb is on top with a shade. It looks like there is tape on the socket, so that makes me lean toward disassembling a socket of the correct size.

    I think I'm in love with your knife case.

    Also, what are those knives?

    I would agree with this. Also looks to me like the bottle is mounted with some sort of conduit/pipe clamp from the wall.

    Wow--those look great! I was tempted to order one for my stepson, but I see they're not shipping for some 6 months.

    Working on some Thistlefinch Distillery product photos. Lighting is still off a bit and processing needs to be done.

    That is a cool lamp. Did you end up making one for yourself?
