  • Something a little different (for me)

    Awhile back Anders posted pictures of a night light he had carved and it got me to thinking, ...... that might look good in a lighthouse as well. Now I must confess, I know absolutely nothing about electricity ( the wife says, I don't even know how to turn a light off most times) so, I contacted Anders and inquired what he had used for lighting and where he got it. He told me what he had used and even showed a diagram of how it was wired. So here is the end result.
    I've located the 9 volt battery in a recessed area under the light keepers house, which is removable when it comes time to replace the battery.
    it was a fun and challenging project, but one I'm in no hurry to repeat .

      It'll probably sit on the shelf and gather dust.... lol. The light has to be activated by a switch which is located just out of site behind the keepers house

                    Nice carving and you could add a motion detector to it. Great Job!

                      Hi Wayne,
                      That is a "GLOWING" example of using a bit of ingenuity. Looks great.
