Neill and Jay - that's the problem - there are so so many bottles that I think would look good. I want to test them all!!!

For now, we are done. I think I will make more to stick in the ground like Jay has. Can you post some pictures of those?

Since I had filled them with oil, I figured I had better install them or risk breaking them in my overcrowded garage.

Thanks,

Christo

It looks good, but maybe a little to close to wood for my taste.

Great idea - one could possibly take the lazy route and forget the mounting bracket and simply stand in a convenient loaction (where it won't get knocked over)...

I hear ya!

Already saving wine bottles for more torches along the path.

Was worried a bit about distance from torch to columns but 5.5 inches seems to be pretty good. Had a prevailing wind towards one of the torches and monitored it for a few hours - column never got hot. the torch blew out a 2 or 3 times. Still - I don't run them unattended.

hmm heard about some red bottles at a wine store in Atlanta. May need to run down there this weekend!

I just had to make one of these lights, but found getting the parts in Australia hard, maybe because we are metric. What I've come up with is a cheaper alternative but it seems to work pretty well.
The wicks I got from Bunnings and the copper reducer (!5x20mm), 15mm pipe, end cap,and 20mm pipe from plumbing supplies. The 20mm pipe was a whisker too big so I made some cuts in it and squeezed the diameter down a little. The two angle brackets are sufficient to hold a 375ml bottle and the bottle is held in position by a saddle fixed with bolts and wing nuts.

If anyone else does this, post some pics. I'd like to see what it looks like with different bottles too. I found a few websites that sell empty bottles so if you really want the blue ones they're easy to find.

My wife will be so happy if I tell her that maybe I can SELL some of my old bottles (living around here we end up with a lot of emptys)! Going to go stock up now!

They do look cool and now I plan on adding a couple of built in holders to the oven I am planning.

Eric.
