Scrap Wood Lantern
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.
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!
