Getting enough filler to hide your power cord is only half the battle. Incorporating a visual balance is just as important.

White power cord, white filler – A win win.

  • Just wanted to say that I have been wishing to get into making bottle lamps. I have been a woodworker for many years along with a Law Enforcement Officer. But now I have been forced to disability and I try to do woodworking at home. I have made lamps from all kinds of wood along with turning old fire extinguisher’s into lamps. But I have wished to try making lamps from bottles along with getting a way to cut bottles. So I hope to be able to get the bottle cutter from you when I get the money together to do so. Being on a fixed income it’s not easy to get things that I want so fast. But I am thankful for the email which I am going to keep to be able to get a bottle cutter. Thank You Again and God Bless.

    • Mr. Hawkins,

      Thank you for your service as a member of the Law Enforcement Community. We’ll keep you posted on the up-coming giveaway and how you can enter to win!



  • Can you tell me what the Hennessy bottle is filled with and where I might find it? It looks like charcoal and that matte look is what I need.
