This project didn’t require much when it came to woodworking other than the wood mounted base. I have seen a few variations of pulley pendant lights on the web and thought it would be neat to build my own. I came across an old pulley and hanger at an antique mall. I bought the light hardware from a local big box store. I put some scrap lumber to use and applied some paint and stain I had around. I was hoping to make this my first custom made item to sell but once the Christmas season is over and the decorations are packed away, the Mrs. says she wants this hung in the house.Thanks for looking.

Thank you. Well it took longer to gather all the parts than anything else. I was hesitant in posting it on here considering that the woodworking portion was pretty simple.

You did a great job! Thank you for posting it.

I don’t see a electric cord so how did you hide it?

Thank you. I wrapped the chord in rope. If you take a close look at the photo that shows the rope tied to the hook you will notice that I have it coming through the wood mount. The chord immediately makes a 90 degree bend downward resting in a dado from the hole extending down the back and out from the bottom of the mount.

Have your say...
