Lighthouse at Beach

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.

  • What a beautiful lighthouse! Nice work with the different cuts and assembling this!

  • Your comment is directly on target. An important element is determining the various angles, and having the tools to make the double and triple miter cuts. This also is part of the fun, and why we do projects such as this.
