Now it’s time to drill your hole.
You’ll want to drill your hole about 3/4″ deep.
*Note: You’ll need to drill your hole as deep as your socket is on the bottom of your solar light once it is removed from the post. Again, I purchased the $4.88 individual solar lights from Home Depot so for these lights, the socket (or bottom end of the light) was approximately 3/4″ long.
After your hole is drilled, take your bees wax and rub it on your stumps. Be generous with the wax! You can use a clean cloth to rub it on but I used my hands since the wood was so smooth. I love this wax because it smells so good and it leaves the wood looking so beautiful.
*Note: you’ll want to reapply the wax once a year to protect the wood from additional weathering.
