Based on the historic Cape Hatteras lighthouse in North Carolina, this do-it-yourself lighthouse project creates a warm, welcoming beacon for any home port. The project's dramatic paint scheme and working light create a striking accent for any yard or garden. The lighthouse is topped with a solar-powered pathway light (available at most home and garden centers and online), so it requires no wiring or electrical hook-up. Other required materials include a single sheet of exterior plywood, three feet of dimensional lumber, a hardwood dowel, glue, nails and screws and some paint. Modular construction, mostly straight cuts, full-size traceable patterns and a color chart for painting make it easy for almost any builder to get great results. To build, simply trace the parts onto plywood, cut everything out and sand. Next, assemble and paint the base, tower and top separately. Finally, stack the three subassemblies, add the light and wait for the sun to go down. The completed lighthouse is 22 inches in diameter at its widest point and stands about 64 inches tall. About U-Bild plans: U-Bild plans are ideal for woodworkers and do-it-yourselfers of all skill levels. Unique trace, saw and assemble designs feature simple-to-follow patterns (like sewing patterns) that produce professional-looking results.
