I don't have enough info or any pics of me actually making it, but too much for it to just be like a slideshow... However, this project is pretty self-explanatory and very customizable
Step 1: Wood Work
mine mainly uses 4 sticks to create a 3 range motion of forward back and up down
i used a craftsman drill to make the holes thus i am able to enter this contest...
Step 2: Electronic Parts
but basically from goldmine elec
4 rainbow leds (pack)
1 high output warm white led
1 turkey sound box (gobble)
some computer speaker cable (3 conductor)
more so dont order until u have read the whole instructable
Step 3: More Work
next 2 pics show the machine screws abd thus the ability to move the "arm"
Step 4: Electrical
wire the other 2 pins on the switch to the remainig 2 wires (insulated) in the cable
switch is shown hot glued in
Step 5: More Electrical
in my case I used two yellow leds (one of which had a clear lens) and a bright blue led in the center
connect all 5 positive leads to one colow wire
connect the 4 negative leads from the rainbow to another color wire, and the white negative is the third wire... wire these into the box, the white led in the center and 4 rainbow around it... hook it up to the 3 conductor cable and wire the rest so that it is hidden and looks nice.
u can use headers or some other quicky way to switch between desk and portable power , wire in a nc reed switch so it can also be used as a cool drawer light, or wire in a toroid and additionally power it as a joule thief
