5’ tall lighthouse made from all pressure treated wood. The base uprights and angled uprights are 3/4” PT plywood and all the other parts I re-sawed, Milled, Planed, Etc. from 2”×6” PT lumber. It has a revolving beacon with a Fresnel lens that i got from The lighthouse man .com.

Barnaget Lighthouse in New Jersey, Since I live not far from it, I have been there many times. It;s not an exact replica, More of a tribute.

That’s a great looking lighthouse! I’d love to have that in my backyard with the lamp rotating—would be pretty cool!

Awesome work and colouration. I like the electrical component too.
