This is not my handiwork...it's Ben's. He made this as an object lesson for the children who ride the Sunday School bus. He spent about 5 hours or so on it, and I was amazed at how real it looks. The light is made entirely from cardboard, masking tape and spray paint. The base is made from a 2x4 that he ripped on his table saw and some scrap wood.
He did make one obvious mistake from the real thing. Can you figure it out?! He had to tell me because I'm really bright and all that.
