2” x 12” x 4ft doug fir, 1/8” plywood (for electrical top cover). stained and wired up.
Some free hand router work, and some electrical skills…... that’s about all there is to this project.

Nice looking chandelier. I like your free hand router job as it looks like a halloween skeleton hip and legs.

Good job on keeping the wiring bundle “nice and tight”... most folks would rather just zip-ties bundles of lamp cord together and use plastic twist-nuts to hook ‘em all together.

Nice project!

Interesting. Any heat build up with enclosed ball jars? I’m guessing you unscrew them to change a bulb?

Thanks guys!

(No Doc Savage, 11 watt bulbs don’t heat up much at all, but with 10 pendant drops, you still get 110 watts of light. And yes, unscrew the jar to access the bulbs.)

That’s awesome, I would like to try this out of some red cedar that I work with. Great job and idea.
