Outdoor lantern for a clients garden. Douglas fir, cedar & cypress. Slate and copper roof. Solar garden light. About 65 hours in this build. Fun one that.
Sorry about the sideways photos, this is the only site I know that does this and I can’t figure out an easy way to adjust them.

Gorgeous work. Can you show us the solar light? Is it out on a wire, or mounted in the roof of the toro?

WOW I like the design, craftsmanship and all the detail and materials you chose for this awesome light if I may call it that .
The sideways pictures can be rotated with windows 10 pictures and then uploaded .

Looks like a lot of good old craftsmanship went into your Toto. The choice of materials should last.
I find the easiest way to up right your photos is to crop them a tiny bit in your smart phone before posting on this sight.
Try it then remove the photos then repost.

Good luck.
