In seven stages, this lighthouse project was a seven day process. Made with any wood I had lying around. It has a 120 volt rotating beacon. The most challenging part was laying out the black & white spiral.

Magnificant tower light house. The colouration is pretty authentic and detailed.

Beacon from Lighthouse Man.com. No, not from a plan, at least not a market plan. I started through trial and error with the 8 sided tower, although it is in reality a round tapered tower, I took liberty and made octagon.

Very nicely done. I bet that strip was a bear!

I saw the Hatteras one when I was looking at examples before building mine.
