Lighthouse Tree Toppers

The last few days we have been working on orders for Christmas. Mostly Nova Scotia maps on backer boards and Cape Breton maps on backer boards. We have already posted about that process but this order also included lighthouses. These lighthouses are 10 to 11 inches tall.

That picture was sent in from a customer. The process began in the workshop. Jim cut out all of the parts and then started assembling the bases.
