Here is a light post made from cedar. It is a square post made with 7/8 cedar planks, rabbited and glued. Base and moldings were then added. The base is made to fit over a 4×4 pressure treated post with room left over to accommodate a NM cable for power to the light fixture (light fixture not in picture). It was finished with Epifanes matt varnish (3 coats).
