Pacific Edge Jatoba Post Light

Because wood in the garden lasts and lasts. Made like fine furniture, this durable outdoor light is handsome enough that you may be tempted to use it indoors. But the Pacific Edge is built to withstand the vagaries of climate and to last outdoors through decades of bad weather. We’ve been using Jatoba (Brazilian cherry wood) for years in our outdoor deck, arbor, pergola, and light designs. So don’t let wood scare you away. It has already stood the hardest tests of time and the elements! Its beauty will draw you in, and its durability will impress you for a lifetime.

Unlike any other wooden outdoor light, this rugged Jatoba light has perfect proportions and an amazingly natural yet sophisticated appearance. The lines are uncomplicated, clean, and straightforward. By day, its beauty enhances entryways, paths, stairs or garden locations. By night, illumination from a hand-hammered copper sconce gives effective, functional light. The warm glow of beautifully grained wood makes this striking light the perfect choice for most landscapes.

Jatoba wood: Jatoba (Brazilian cherry wood) is the wood of choice for these lights. We have tested many other traditional and exotic woods, but none compares to the beauty and endurance that Jatoba offers. These lights will last and last, no matter what the weather! Yes, Jatoba has a 40-year outdoor ground-contact rating, and yes, it weathers better than teak or cedar and is 1.5 times harder than oak. And yes, it’s gorgeous! Each handmade light has a unique grain pattern and a rich depth of natural coloring. Without further care, the wood will fade to a subtle lighter hue. Or an occasional application of fine wood oil will maintain the dark, polished appearance of  elegant furniture and well-maintained bright-work. The Pacific Edge is distinctive, and will be noticed day and night. Wood belongs outdoors and in the garden, and using Jatoba finally makes this possible.

Copper: Our lamp sconces are locally made of hand-hammered, “weighty” copper, which can be left to weather naturally or given a patina finish to look old sooner with a soft-green, verdigris color. This light also has a copper cap, which will match your finish choice for the sconce.

Sizes: Our carpenter builds these lights to stand 36 inches high, 4.75 inches wide, and 3 inches deep at the top, tapering toward the bottom. You may choose a “right” or “left” sconce mounting. As you face the light, the highest point would be the “R” or “L” designation, and the lamp would be on this face.

Illumination: 12 volt lamping using an 18-watt or lower wedge-based incandescent light. This design features a functional, effective, warm-toned light that illuminates a 225° sector 12 feet or more in diameter around the post.

Night-Sky-Friendly: All our lights are night-sky-friendly. This means that the light shines where you need it: toward the ground on paths, entries, and stairs, but not into your eyes, or your neighbor’s, and not into the sky to waste electricity and obscure the stars. All our lights use UL-approved electrical components, and they all meet or exceed the code requirements that many cities have adopted to limit outdoor light pollution.

Mounting: These come mounted on a steel bracket and are ready to set in concrete. With a slight modification, they can also be through-bolted onto a wood surface such as a deck.
