Rewiring a Lamp
Get that lamp you love back in working order with five easy steps, courtesy of home improvement professional JoAnne Liebeler.
Most lamp cords have two strands of wire that are each covered with insulation. In order to strip the wire, you first need to separate the two strands.
Use wire cutters to cut the new cord to length, with a little slack. Use a utility knife to slice the center groove until the blade digs into the wood, and then split the cord a few inches. Repeat this process on the other end of the cord, unless the plug is already attached.
