    Oh that's so neat Jessica. What treasures. I have all my folks photos and movies. I've started scanning the pictures, but have yet taken the videos to be transferred to digital media.

    Becky I love this!! I made one a few years ago from a surveyors stand, but with the chain it seemed wobbly, Are you having that problem? You did yours a little differently, so I might try it this way! Thanks for the tutorial.

    What a great idea! Now you have a lamp that has a wonderful story behind it!

    This is amazing and love that it came from your grandfather. I actually made one of these years ago from an old surveyors tripod but one of the legs needs a little tlc to make it stand. I'm motivated to get it done now!

    What an awesome way to use a special family item. My husband has a level and some other random tools from his grandfather. I'm still racking my brain to figure out a way to use them. Excellent execution.
