How to build a cube pendant light

If you want your bedroom to look more vintage you can create this amazing open cube pendant light in some quick easy steps. So if you are ready I will guide you in creating this beautiful wooden cube.You will need the materials to make your cube. Try finding ¾ square dowels, you will need 25 feet.

First you will need to cut four long pieces of 15” and with the rest of the material you will need to make eight exact shorter pieces. Then you will make two squares using two long part and two short parts (for one square). To attach the squares you will need a nail gun and finishing nails. After you finish the two squares you will use the four remaining pieces to obtain a cube.

Congratulations! You have now obtained your cube. Now you will have to put in your cross parts. To do that you will need to cut the ends at a 45 degree angle. After you finish the cross parts you will obtain an X’s when you look from one side. Now it is time for the hardest part. You will need to drill a hole in a corner so that the tube of the pendant light will fit in. You can now paint the wood in any color you want but I think the natural wood color will go very well. Good luck and please be careful because you will be disappointed if you ruin the parts.{found on vintagerevivals}.
