Lighthouse

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.

Nice work Prez.
That came out great.
Your paint job really added to it too.

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.
