This job was done at my friend’s house. I bought the columns and cut out the oak panels on all side. I replaced them with stained glass. The built in light wasn’t easy to make, ( The company should make these kind of columns with built in light . Costumers would be happy.) but it turned out wery well. The lighs are extremely beautiful at night.

Great Idea, you should approach the company that built the columns with your idea it sure looks like a winner to me.

Those are some great looking lights.

I’ve been trying to find some 110 volt led lights that could be used in places like you used yours. They don’t create a lot of heat and last almost forever

Very nice and a great idea for the lighting. How do you change the bulbs?

One of the glasses is removable if the bulbs need to be replaced.

I bought the staircase treads at the local lumber yard. They just had rounded edges.

I really, really like this work. Works of art. I’d like to know where you got the wrought iron? I’ll be doing something like this on a smaller scale down the road and I’d like to mimic this design.

That is hot! Actually, I hope not too hot. What is the light source? Can it be kept cool enough to keep it from being a fire hazard? Still, a wonderful idea, beautifully executed, too.
