Boutique lamp makers Typewriter Boneyard recently released the Book Lamp, a hardcover book with a built-in switch and bulb. But here's the thing: it costs $140. I have a feeling you wonderful fixers can put together a book lamp that looks just as good for a fraction of the price. Think you got what it takes?

And seeing how this it There, I Fixed It, points will also be given to most kludged-together design. LET'S DO THIS

The vacuum cleaner was missing those floor cleaning accessories, so I made my own with isolant tape and a box.

From the submitter:

So you have a ceiling fan in a room with a cathedral ceiling that needs a light bulb and no ladder available. Using a broom stick, an empty pill bottle, a hair scrunchy, a large chef's knife, and some duct tape you can build Bulb Changing Tool 5000. Simply cut a series 1-1/2" long slits lengthwise starting at the open end of the pill bottle to make a collapseable bulb holder. Wrap the hair scrunchy around the pill bottle to enable a nice grippy action. Punch a hole in the bottom of the pill bottle.

Bagger broke? There, I fixed it. This leaf scoop solves the problem with leaves piling up in front of the mower deck and pushes the bulk to the curb. Though it will shove your leaves to the curb, you don't want to use this on a busy road because you will certainly get a few strange looks.
