Really nice looking. It should add a lot of character to your deck. That polyurethane Glue is really fantastic for outdoor glueing.

Indeed beautiful scene, those lanterns are great. Good idea to take lexan instead glass, at least the will last longer.

Excellent work. Scraps are a great resource often overlooked.

Terrific idea and nicely executed. What did you use for a power source?

- Steve

You can use any 12v dc power supply provided it has the amperage to run the number of bulbs you want. This one would run a max of a dozen 3 watt bulbs. Power supply . Or a low voltage landscape controller like this guy if you want a built in timer & light sensor. Landscape transformer

In case anyone’s interested in the parts, I’ll list them below.
Sockets
Cable connectors
3 watt bulbs

Half the bulbs pictured are these 5 watt bulbs. I think I’ll switch them all to these as they fit the lamps better.
