    This is really, really nice! Are you going to stain the cedar or let it weather to that classic silver grey?

      I haven’t quite decided! But if we do anything, it will just be a sealer, to protect the natural color.

      Wow, sorry for the delayed response, but it’s an arroyo craftsman post lamp, which you can find online a bunch of places, including 1800lighting.com

    Absolutely beautiful. Exactly what I’d like to build for our new construction. Do you have any plans, however rough, you could share?

    Can you tell me how the post was put together? Did you use a 4×4 and then frame out the edging?

      Hi Ben – What I did was sink a post anchor into the ground with concrete, and then I built a hollow post, with pressure treated 2x6s on two sides, and 2x4s on the other, leaving a 4×4″ hollow center for the wiring, outlet boxes, etc. to fit inside. I set that frame around the post anchor, and used lag bolts all the way through the base to anchor it in place. Then I just wrapped the hollow post with cedar and trimmed it out.

      Hope that helps.
