8' Canoe light


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?

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.

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 not here. Will you do that?

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.
