    NICE! Except [1] the IKEA Vase KONSTFORM is not available in the US; and [2] the complete tutorial is in German.

    This is DANGEROUS!

    Do NOT, NEVER EVER run a mains cable through a metal vase (or other container) without a cable grommet – see here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cable_grommet

    The cable will rub itself against the metal and over time can cause a short to the vase. Meaning: the vase will then be 230V or 110V live = LIFE THREATENING!
    Always use a grommet, they only cost a couple of cents. Be safe!
