What Materials Do I Need?
To make these wooden lanterns, you will need pine or “whitewood” boards for the base, in 1×6, 1×8 or 1×10 size (depending on the size of the lantern you are building).
For the 3/4″ x 3/4″ pieces, you can buy 3/4″ square dowels online or at most home improvement stores. a 1×8 or 1×12, and screw them into the 3/4″ strips. Tearing is not easy for this small piece, do not try without experience in using a table saw.
Different Basis of Style
This plan includes three different style bases, for your personal preference. Use the cut list that fits your base to make your lantern.
