These are the cedar outdoor lights that I built for infront of my waterwheel. I used low-voltage lights that I bought at a garage sale. After I built the cedar boxes, I placed the bulbs that I removed from the bought lights into the interior structure. I used 1/4” Lexan that I sanded with 120 grit paper as my lenses. I finished them with teak oil.

Rob,

That is a wonderful addition to your landscaping. They are functional and add a lot of curb appeal as well.

Nice job.
