Built myself this 8 foot x 17 inches wide canoe light.
The canoes hull was built using cedar and all the dark wood is cherry.

That’s one fine looking light! now if you double the scale you can make another that you can put in the water.

Why did you turn such a beautiful canoe into a light?

I have one that resides in my house and I may turn it into a light but still be able to take it out to do some canoeing.

Great build. Thanks for the idea.
