I had seen a mason jar light fixture made by liveEdge ( http://lumberjocks.com/projects/97493 ) and loved it. The wife wanted a new light in the dinning room and I figured this would go perfectly with my kitchen table and be cheaper than buying a new light fixture. I have this board from an old 1870’s house up in my rafters of my shop so I figured I would use some of it. The chain is just one of those you can buy in any length from the hardware store. The light socket is attached with a hollow threaded rod for electric lights and the lid is held by the light and two screws. I painted all the parts rust brown to match the board. The board was finished with oil based satin varethane.
