This was a fun little project to do. I got the inspiration after going to Taliesin last year and noticed that while beautiful stylistically, Frank Lloyd Wright’s stuff was kinda cheaply made. It didn’t seem that daunting then to try and emulate his style for my little project.
For the wood part, I used all cedar and it was the first time I’ve used a machine planer for anything. Now I’m a little addicted to that. Two coats of kona red stain and they’re out the door.
The light is a cannibalized solar lamp from Lowe’s (Portfolio 2.36-in Led Solar Path Lights Model #: RS22P-N2-BK-T36) These were easy to use as the top part popped right off and all I had to was snuggly fit it in the hole and glue it securely. It also had an accessible rechargeable aa battery so hopefully these will give us years of lighting.
Added nighttime picture. Love the geometry shown with the light.
