Scrap Wood Lantern

4 Days
Do you have wood scraps laying around your house or your garage? Cut them up into blocks and glue them together to create a lantern! When turned on, it throws great shadows around, and looks beautiful when turned off too!
Start with lots of little pieces. It's like building a city, but not. It was difficult finding the right pieces to fit against one another, especially because I had a few special blocks, like that zebra wood.
Glue + clamps. Lots of clamps. Less glue that I thought. This is time consuming. Be patient.
Lantern is made from 4 panels.
The blocks create such great shadows, imagine what the light is like coming through it! Click through to my blog post to see the final lantern!
