From the creator, "I recently got a great deal on two boxes of solar garden/path lamps on eBay - 8 lamps for US$15 bucks, including shipping! These lamps are great for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is they use rechargeable batteries, replenished daily by the sun, and require no expensive electricity!...It was only a matter of time before one of these lamps got the makeover of my real passion - Steampunk."

What you'll need:

• Hole saw set
