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.
