Tell us about yourself!
Very, very nice! 3 years later, I've been on the same path and had resigned myself to a DIY also. How I haven't stumbled over your "awesome" post before, I do not know! I'm stunned at how much just a lamp post costs, and like you I have a budget. Since I don't have the lampshade you found, I'm trying wok lids as a shade. The most clever part of this is just putting an LED light in and posting it up; I'm using low voltage (ie "landscape lighting"), so this is going to work very well. Thank you so much for taking the time to post!
Great look, nice job! Thanks for taking the time to share, I'm going to do one just like it (but with your added tips)
Very nice, great style! You do good work - it looks like it was manufactured. Thanks for taking the considerable effort to document your project, and sharing it. I'm going to try to make one myself.I have one question, I'm not able to understand what exactly you edge-banded; was it it the inside box or the outside box? It seemed like you painted one and stained the other, so that confused me.
Wow - nicely done! I have used polycabronate a lot, easy to work with. I appreciate your design and your posting, I will try to replicate your work. Thanks!
So...awesome! I would love to replicate this. You are my current hero.
