Nice idea and nice work. Well done. I was contemplating building one for the lower garden using LED lamps as well. You have inspired me to get off my @ and get it done …. if I ever find any spare time.

Your light is beautiful. If you can, please post a photo of it after dark. I would like to see how it looks in the night.

Thank you all again and enjoy the tooooo short summer !
Thank you for the extra photos, Kiefer. I like the soft light it gives off, gently illuminating the hosta plants. I think your light is beautiful both night and day. Well done.

When I first looked at the photos, before reading your post, I wondered whay you used on the screen – Tyvek is a perfect choice. Lovely workmanship; wish I could do that nice of joinery.

Looks great Kiefer, I would of never thought of using TYVEK as a light cover, but it sure does a great job. Love the design and the functionality!
