My friend asked me to make her a lighthouse from a set of plans. Here’s the before and after. It’s amazing what a little paint will do! I learned a lot about cutting hexagones on this one. Good experience to “hone” one’s skills. The lighthouse stands approx 4 ft tall. A rotating light will be installed.

Cool, can you let us know where you got the plans? I am thinking of covering my well and I could wire the light into the well power so it came on whenever the well pump turned on.

Very nice Prez, I need to make one for my wife, she collects lighthouses, we have about 20 of them in our bathroom surrounding the tub. Maybe I can add this to the Christmas projects list.
