I think everyone likes light houses. I plan on seeing more of them this summer on the WA and OR coasts.

Very nicely done. Could you share any jigs or templates you made to cut the tapered parts?

Basically this is how I cut the 8 tapered uprights only with the blade on a 22.5° angle and instead of a screw I pinned the work piece to the jig with an 18 gauge nail gun, They also have a 5° cut on the bottom edge.
I have a set of plans for a 5 foot tall lighthouse I built, I just scaled them down for the lamp. I got them online for $8, I’ll email them to you for free if you want.

This is a very creative lamp and a nice looking light house. It makes a very attractive lamp.

A fine looking lighthouse lamp—I like striping of it!

I’ve always liked lighthouses, and we have several along the Oregon coast. Yours kinda reminds me of being at the beach!
