Hidden Path Lights plansFree Hidden Path Lights plans - When you veer off a dark cottage path, it is easy for things to go bump in the night—things including your forehead on the birch near the privy. But there is no need to take your lumps at Doug Thompsons Lake Temagami family cottage, thanks to the cedar path lights he installed with his father, Graeme. The tradition began in the 1980s, when Graeme mulled over a use for a hollowed-out cedar that blew over in a storm. To make the basic lamp, Thompson grabs his chainsaw and starts with a straight cut through the log to form the base of the light, then a 30-degree angled cut for the sloping top. For the mouth of the fixture, he makes two straight cuts into the face of the block, and then knocks the centre piece out with a chisel and hammer.
