I had bought some solar lights from the dollar store to try and mount them in some mason jars but I didn’t like how dim the lights were. I had a spare cedar fence picket so I designed a holder in Sketchup and built it in an afternoon. I put a cherry stain on the shelves and left the legs bare. I assembled it with glue and brads and gave it two coats of outdoor spar urethane. It is going to be the centerpiece for my table on my back patio.

You can watch a video of how I made it here:

Thanks for checking it out!

sketchup is a really awesome program…i just learned it a month or so ago but it helps so much! cant beat accurate measurements and actually seeing something before you build it
