How To Make a Coffee Tin Light

What's the first thing you do when you wake up, flip on the light or make a cup of coffee? Well now you can do both (sort of) with this cool, do-it-yourself lamp from the folks at ReadyMade.

The project requires a few simple tools and fairly basic materials. All the instructions are at ReadyMade | Coffee Can Lamp.

This is a fun project for some vintage tins and larger cans where the labels are printed directly on the metal — what would you use to improve upon this hack?
