A floor tom and turn it into a glowing end table to make it glow we're gonna use a whizz light bulb. This is actually a smart light bulb, so we set it up through my iPhone. Then we can make it any color or fade between colors, with the bulb ready to go. We moved on to prepping the drum we remove the floor tom legs and remove the top and bottom rings and heads, you'll notice.
The bottom head is clear, and that is what will become the top of our drum with the top and bottom removed. We moved on to removing the hardware the inside Phillips head screws were quite corroded, so we will clean those later with wd-40. We discovered in our last project that the plastic coating around the drum can easily be removed, and that's what we're doing here, we sanded off any sticky parts. We found a scrap piece of wood that we're going to be using to hold the cord set. We used a jigsaw to cut the curve of the drum in the wood, we cut a hole in the middle for the court set. We decided to paint the inside gold to help the light glow from the inside. We used to Lac on the outside to seal the natural wood finish.
The chrome hardware was pretty dull and dirty so mom cleaned it up with wd-40 and aluminum foil. Next, we put all the hardware back on the drum. We used a mallet to get the extra piece of wood in place. It felt really secure, so we didn't use any other fasteners. We edit our court set and it fits snugly into the drum interior. Then we put the bottom drum ring in place without the head. So the bottom is completely open. Then we reattach the floor tom legs. These can be adjusted to different heights. We took the drum to my livery room added the light bulb the clear head and secure the ring. We will, with the 24-inch glass round for the top and use little rubber feet to secure it to the drum and here's how it looks you can see right through the drum.
