This is the second garden light design made from spruce with brown over black spray lacquer .
I used a lap jointed frame and grove and rubber spline to hold the fabric ( house wrap ) in place this time and it worked much better.
See my earlier post (All the parts )
The little guy in the pics is my new apprentice ,he is only three month old but very good at carving and I hope he turns out as well as my old helper who I miss very much .

I made this for my oldest doughter for Thanks Giving as she liked the one I made from cedar so much .

Very nice look.
I’ve got an old helper. Her name is Gracie and she is really starting to slow down, but is still where ever i am.
