8' Canoe light
 
1 Attachment(s)
Look what I built myself. 8' long x 17" wide canoe light for my home.
It has such a nice glow.

That is very nice------would it have worked as a canoe if you hadn't drilled it out for the lights?

Most excellent - great work!

Not sure, my GEEK buddy did the work. I will ask him and "GET BACK TO YA":laughing:

Thank you, Ralph.

Imitation is a sincere form of flattery!

Very cool! Ralph, How long did it took for you to finish this?

Ralph Coolong 09-27-2013 05:47 AM

OK I actually sold this canoe to.
Carlos and Maria from NJ. Carlos added the lights and come to find out this very canoe will be on "THIS OLD HOUSE" on pbs in oct 3/13.
This old house gang saw the canoe and loved it.
Hey i am a happy camper.

Why the deception? We have plenty of pros and amateurs that sell their work----there was no need to hide that----Mike------

Well last time I added "I sold it" to a post in some other forum they pulled me from the forum and told me that the forum was not to promote any thing for sale??:no: no no not here. Will you do that?:whistling2:

We have a very interesting. Mix of members here.


We will pm you if there is a question about a post.

Yeah, neat light! But might it not be better to hang it down from the ceiling a bit more? Better to cast more light closer to the floor and to possibly see the full contours of the canoe.
