After the glass oil container of the real lantern was accidentally broken, the top part was somehow saved. At that moment this idea hit my head. Also, I found an offcut of plywood from another PW project which was perfect for my new project. It was solidly glued out of three segments. I bought the flicking light from (2 Dollar Shop) at 6 for $2 only. So, I still have 5 things to break and 5 ideas to create. It was really a quick project almost from nothing. I like it.
