I had seen a mason jar light fixture made by liveEdge ( ) and loved it. The wife wanted a new light in the dinning room and I figured this would go perfectly with my kitchen table and be cheaper than buying a new light fixture. I have this board from an old 1870’s house up in my rafters of my shop so I figured I would use some of it. The chain is just one of those you can buy in any length from the hardware store. The light socket is attached with a hollow threaded rod for electric lights and the lid is held by the light and two screws. I painted all the parts rust brown to match the board. The board was finished with oil based satin varethane.

Purdee cool. I would be careful in the sense of that light bulb being totally enclosed. A lot of them bulbs nowadays are not made to be in an enclosed space. Check out the fine print on the bulb box.
