Built this back in 2012 for a guy for his mother to display her mini light houses , glass doors and front , lighted shelfs and a light that rotated on the top !! Designed and built this from scrach as I went along , 7 1/2 feet high and the base was 36 " , brought me a pic. on a brown paper bag , did a redesign for him !!

Very cool cabinet, Jim. I really like that you took the lighthouse theme and ran with it, and that you even included the safety lines around the base and the upper section. Great attention to detail. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Jim, now this is woodworking,  That is one fine looking cabinet and how fitting it is to display light houses in.  I think this is really a piece of art as it design is fascinating.   I know was not the easiest thing to build.  Anytime you build a multi-side object it is a challenging job.  This is an excellent example of craftsmanship as it really takes your thought to a real light house and all the intriguing things we all have read about and even taken ventures into them.  Like how you put the top on and all that is missing is the rotating spot light.   Nice job and thank you for posting your work.

K5 Review

I really like the k5 it is faster to change from different size of screws. I hesitated to update because of some of the reviews about the dust collection hook up. That to me one of the improvements it works perfect no dust to cleanup .…
