This is slick. 6’ tall- wow. How wide is the base? did you have to weight the bottom?

This model lighthouse is so outstanding and beautifully done and displays a lot of nice details and craftsmanship.

At 6 feet tall it can’t really be that light!
Nice job!
Please provide some information as to the light and rotation hardware as I have been considering a similar project!

Man that is a beautiful lighthouse! It looks great in walnut, and would look amazing at night with the lamp operating!
