Here’s a cool project: how to convert a book into a lamp. The tutorial goes over how to “scalp” the book, build a frame for the light, insert the LEDs into the lamp, and put it all together.
It looks like this project takes a little skill–“basic soldering and some rudimentary wood cutting,” according to the site–but the results are so cool.
