This is our new garden light I made from a discarded red cedar post and some building wrap ( TYVEK )from a construction site .
The post is a leftover from my arbor project with a few strips added .
Finish is spar varnish and lite is a LED closet light .

Really nice design and execution. And bravo for the “green” construction techniques. Nice one.
