Two friends and I restored/rebuilt the beach lighthouse. Because the structure had become delapidated from years of winter weather, virtually every component had to be disassembled. Almost all needed repair or rebuilding The pyramid shape required cross-cutting and ripping, including a significant amount of double and triple mitering. The cuts were made with a Ryobi table saw, a Ryobi circular saw, and an older radial miter saw. In addition, certain moldings were made with the table saw and a router. The resultant pieces were fastened with wood glue and wood screws. Tools used include 1) the table saw, circular saw, radial miter saw, and router mentioned above, 2) the tools listed elsewhere in this project, and 3) other commonly used woodworking tools. The restored lighthouse is installed at my friend's house at the beach. His wife says it draws compliments virtually every day.
