3 Materials
2 Days
I started by cutting down the legs from an old library table at 36,24 ano 12 inches
Then I sanded all the legs with a 80 grit sandpaper
Then I cut the base for the Lamp Post at 10x10 and sanded it die with a 80 g sandpaper as well
Then I found the center of each post and drilled a 5/8 hole in each 1 for the solar light to fit snug and remember it's just the light part and not the stem
Then I layed the 36 in post on the bottom and the the other 2 on each side of it and gorilla glued them togather and let them sit over night to dry
Then I screwed a 3 inch screw in each post si when I paint it I don't have to touch the post and mes them up and when they dry I take them out
I added a primer to the oust and base for more protection from the weather
Then I added a water proof navy blue that the coustomer wanted
Then I added the base and screwed 3 inch screws int the post from the bottom for more strength
Then i added a black hook,champign rope and a home sweet home sigh that I made my self and the solar lights remember just the base of the lights and not the stems
