Made this yesterday Lighthouse-image-4188627361.jpg A couple months ago I saw a crystal from an old chandelier and thought it might look nice as the glass part of a lighthouse. So I took an old piece of split rail fence, western red cedar, hollowed it out as if I were making a pepper mill and inserted a dollar store LED flashlight. I suppose I could have made it more elaborate but this is XM1. Mayberry next time

Great concept and design! A few years ago I built a small 8 sided light house and used a solar light for the beacon that I found on sale at a big box store. Mounted the "house" to a rear deck post, but had to replace the batteries (2AA) about every 3 months which became a pain. Thanks for sharing, & be safe.
