I was wondering if anyone has ever attempted a DIY Barber pole?
I'm figuring - a standard barber pole mounted to the wall, maybe running off a disco ball motor?
This is the basic idea I'm looking at
I was thinking that I can use a standard ...lets say 5" globe light cover for the top.
Round clear pvc pipe for the glass casing (I was looking for one of those hurricane classes for candles - but haven't found anything large enough)
I figure a disco ball motor or one of those small cheap disco lights that rotate and have a light bulb inside already
I've tested it somewhat with a piece of pvc pipe and the motor seems to spin it at a decent speed.
But where I get stuck, is with the mounts. I don't really want to use wood - as I feel it wouldn't be strong enough once the whole barber pole was assembled, and I don't have a ton of metal work experience.
Any suggestions would be great. They're expensive to buy, and I'm sure everyone likes to save money!
