I had a few pieces of Cedar left over from a fence project so I decided to build a lighthouse, it was a simple project to build, had to make a jig to cut the sides but other than that it was a fun project.
Thanks for looking.

Thank you both.
Yes Larry, it does have an LED light that throws a dim but visible light at night.

Very nice job. Sure does make a great addition to the outdoors. Nicely detailed too.

Very well done, and nice build. Those tapered, mitered sides look fantastic! The added light is way cool also.
