Picture of Shaping/Molding acrylic with a router
IMG_1043.JPG
I managed to acquire some large sheets of very thick acrylic for next to nothing ($15).  I wanted to create a ring of lights for a steampunk/gothic display cabinet I am making.  The best thing about this project is that I found acrylic is very easy to shape/mould with a router - have a look at the results!

Step 1: Materials & Tools

Material:
Thick acrylic sheets (1" or 2.4cm thick) size is dependent on how large you want your ring to be.
Sacrificial wood (for rotating your acrylic on - there will be pictures!)
16 Colour changing LED's + 16 resistors
Wire
Transformer (12 volt 1 amp DC) Walwart

Tools:
Router with router table
Drill bit and drill
Solder and soldering iron
Glue and glue gun
Electric Tile Cutter
