Here’s a wall mounted version of my night light. I’m not selling this version due to the less than simple installation. This one will have to remain unique to our home :o)

The wall mounted light was more challenging but still not difficult. The small Lantern nightlights are really fairly easy to build. Building them efficiently is another story. To a large degree I have streamlined and perfected the process so it doesn’t take me a long time. I probably have 3 to 4 hours in each lantern but when you count materials I don’t make more than 10 bucks/hour.
The biggest challenge is attaching the legs. I tried to speed up the process by using 5-min. epoxy but I found that standard wood glue was about the best. I had to build a clamping jig for consistency and good clamp pressure.

$10/hour for doing something you love sure beats flipping burgers or digging ditches
