I love your base!  That is the best one that I have ever seen!  Do you fill it with sand, or did you cement the pole in place in the can?

Thanks everyone! The pole actually stops at the top of the jug, we bolted a pvc end cap to the lid which the lamp post sits in. This way when traveling, we take the whole lid, post & globes off, leaving just the milk can, so it's two separate pieces and I can protect my globes  ;)

The can weighs about 10 pounds so it's heavy enough to stand on it's own. The cord comes out of the pvc pipe and drapes down the back as we didn't want to cut any holes in the jug. But hubby found a black and red 50 foot cord, so it matches good and can sit anywhere we want.

I built a light which I always bring to the Fort, but yours is fantastic.  Would you be offended if I copied the base?
