This is my first LED project. I got inspired by all the wonderful and imaginative work of some of the people who post/ share their work on this site. My idea was to see how the light of the leds will reflect of the cd's. The final result is very close to what I imagined it would look like. Then decided to buy some contact paper (silver) and to add few white leds to the project. I used a toggle switch (on-off-on) and a potentiometer for the white leds.

Step 1: what you need

For the base of the lamp I used a piece of wood. Then I covered the plastic tube with silver contact paper, drilled a hole in the wood base, drilled four holes in the upper part of the plastic tube for the white leds.
I also covered the cds with silver contact paper.
This is a very very cool idea, thank you
