We’ve been working on a custom rec cabin down by Ninilchik off and on for two years. It belongs to our boss Jake and we work on it when there no other more pressing contracts.

It’s an open floor plan with a central vaulted ceiling. This light will be the centerpiece for the cabin.

It’s is of course meant to offer light but it’s mostly a decorative piece to bring that level of rustic Alaskana to modern times.

I used a piece of local Alaska White Spruce that we milled. I distressed it and sealed the 4×6. Then I repurposed a belt for two decorative straps and added some natural fiber rope to finish the straps.

Adding the decorative straps.

It’s hung by 4 eye lags capable of supporting over 100 lbs.

The lights are string Edison lights fixed by staples around the moose horns. Jake supplied the horns. I used my Makita cut off tool to cut the horns from the skull. I drill two holes in each paddle to attach them to the beam.

I lengthened the cord with a swag light kit to allow it to plug into the switch controlled ceiling outlet.

Temporarily hanging in my doorway.

I can’t wait to install it at the cabin. I’ll update with a picture once it’s installed.
