    After reading the comments, it looks like we should add some vent holes! 😁 Thank you all for feedback!

    Good afternoon!
    I saw some of your videos, I liked your work a lot, so I inscevi.
    I would like to know what your nationality is, as I want to discover the differences in the various styles of woodworking practiced in the USA, Canada, European and Asian countries.
    Big hug, success!

      How cool, I am very curious about the culture of the Nordic countries, I am a fan and I love woodworking, I am happy to know that in this region there are people like you, who dedicates to the woodwork doing beautiful works.
      I am from Brazil, unfortunately here in my country there are almost no people dedicated to the noble art of working the wood and produce beautiful pieces, only some that do it for hobby.
      In my country almost everything is made of laminated wood, MDF sheets nor compensated is hardly used anymore.
      A big hug.

    Nice job lads,
    But again think about some air holes for ventilation, just in case

    Nice project Are!...innovative! Your brother is lucky to have you. Always nice to have a simple project every now and then.
    You may want to think about Steve S's comment on heating from the bulb. If you are using an LED bulb it should not be a problem...little to no heat generated. But if it is a standard filament bulb you will have a build up of heat inside the drum that could cause an issue. If you wanted to vent any heat you could always drill some 1/2"/12mm holes (or larger) in a circle around the hole for the lamp holder. You would also have to drill the drum skin to align with them. The holes would allow the fixture to cast some light above it also as well as breathe.
    Keep up the great work!.

      Thank you so much, Tony! 😊 Yes, it is!
      We made shure we used an LED bulb, so there should not be any problems with heat. Otherwise, that would have been a great solution! 👍🏼

    Great job guys! Just make sure that that bulb doesn't heat up the inside of the drum too much............. :)

      He says they used an LED bulb, so it should not melt the skin. However, I would still suggest some vent holes in the support board. Great Job Are!

      Thank you! We used an LED bulb so it shouldn't be a problem, but we'll keep an eye on it! 😄
