Up cycling an old violin and case as Christmas presents

In the summer I made a tommy gun to fit in a violin case for a show my son was involved in.
……… NB see legislation re this at the bottom of the page if you are thinking about making a gun.

This got me thinking what else could you use an old violin and case for?

So for Christmas I stripped out an old violin case and decorated it, filling it with useful goodies that my wife may need when playing music in pit bands, other idea might be a picnic case or an artists case.

This left me with an old violin, using a charity shop lampshade, some screws, jewelry wire and cheap table lamp I create this conversation starter a violamp.
