Most red floor lamp stores sell the pieces in a harp kit separately as well as metal pipes called lamp rods, which pass through the outer shaft. Specialty websites carry a variety of bases, tubes or shades, shades, end buttons (optional decorative pieces that tops the harp) in a variety of styles from Victorian to Contemporary. The tools you need depend on the material you choose to work with. Choose a base with a hole already in it and you do not even need a drill. Choose a piece of ceramic artwork or leftover granite countertop and you need a drill with specialty a bit.
A red floor lamp bobbin, where you pull the cord from base to jack, will probably be cut with an arc if you do not get the custom cut in the store. From there you can get the same as your tools allow. You can make a statement using recyclable materials like corrugated boxes, plastic liter bottles, No. 10 juice cans, or even paper towel pipes. Run a metal tube called a lamp rod through the bar, securely attach it to a base and a socket / harp mounting and you are in business.
