    I have my bassoon, but cannot find directions to make my lamp. How did you attach it to the stand base? Can you please post the steps? Thank you. Pam

    • I took the U tube off the bassoon, screwed a couple dowel rods into the base where the bore holes line up, and used the existing screw holes from the U tube to screw the boot onto the base from the bottom.

        Hi Trent, I’m about to embark on a bassoon floor lamp project. I want to mount the boot onto a 6cm thick wooden base. Any advice on a secure connection would be greatly appreciated. I think it’s the most crucial part of the job and I want to get it right. Thanks. Regards, Eddie.

    What bassoon did you use?

    • It’s an old Kohlert that needed more in repairs than it was worth. Had a nice lacquer though.
