The next is my favorite woodworking project. It was an idea we had after researching bed side lamps. I really wanted to use Edison style bulbs somewhere and always thought a pendant light over the sink would look nice. So, I put the two together and built a distressed pine box, stained it dark maple, and wired it to the existing light fixture.

I ordered most of the parts from Sundialwire, but another good site would be www.1000bulbs.com.

Wire – http://www.sundialwire.com/W182RTBKXXMNF.aspx ($1.45 per foot) | 10 ft = $14.50
Bulbs – http://www.sundialwire.com/BS21MA30.aspx ($9.00) | 5 = $45
Socket – http://www.sundialwire.com/SKSKNK.aspx ($4.75) | 5 = $23.75

Dimensions are 10 inches wide by 40 inches long by 4 inches high. I spaces the 5 lights evenly across the face (about 6 and 2/3 inches)

The dye I used was Transfast water soluble dye – dark mission brown.
