Make this miniature working scale light house from scraps of balsa wood, beads, and a flashing or steady LED (light emitting diode). It can also be built as a non working light, by substituting a clear bead for the LED.
LED's are useful for miniature projects. They can be powered from a 9 volt battery if you want to locate a light in a scene which is not wired for electricity. They don't emit very much heat, they have a long burn time without replacement, and they can be purchased either flashing or non flashing in a number of colors. This is an easy project for a beginner, and a cute little light for a toy shop or dolls house scene. It can be built in several sizes, depending on the size of LED and beads you choose.
