The Wood & Cord Light

If you can’t buy a nice looking light fixture for this old house, you make one. And that’s what we did for the rental unit.

Wrangle up:

  • A slice of cherry wood sourced from western Massachusetts
  • Colored cord
  • Light sockets
  • Light plug (or whatever you want for a pull cord)
  • Materials to hang the board from ceiling
  • Bulbs (probably not mirrored) appropriate for desired light

I think this is the beta version. More wood and cord lights to come. And hopefully a better photo of it.
