Introduction: Game of Thrones Lamp/Decoration

I've started to sketch my idea out. I want to make like a "art like" thing that you can hang on your wall. On this panel I will build a wooden map of different sigils, such as the sigil of the Stark family.

I will lasercut the sigils of these worlds and maybe engrave a logo for aesthetic purposes. Behind the sigils I will try to make some backlighting with a LED strip. The spacers between the sigil and the back panel will be 3D printed.

A list of things I need:

  • A white/black back panel, I've not decided which material yet.
  • Wood for the sigils, needs to be lasercutted.
  • Spacers, for between the map and the back panel.
  • LED strip.
  • Glue.
  • Electrical cord, with a plug.

I probably forgot some materials, but I will update the list when needed.

Tools needed:

  • Lasercutter
  • 3D printer
  • Hot glue pistol
  • Sandpaper

Step 1: Step 1: Make the Illustrator Plans for the Sigil

I've started with making the design plans in Adobe Illustrator. I will add them to this instructable, so you can download and use them too! We need this for the front sigil of the lamp.

Step 2: Step 2: Cutting the Sigils

The next step is to cut the sigils with the lasercutter. First I made a small prototype to see if everything came out as I wanted to. After that I made the full scale sigil of the two houses.

Step 5: Step 5: Printing the Spacers

Today I 3D printed the spacers for the back panel. For this course I needed to use the 3D printer so that is the reason I printed these spacers, the easier option was of course to buy wooden spacers.

Step 6: Step 6: Assembly

Today I put all the pieces together. First I Needed to cut a hole in the back panel. And I needed to cut out the back panel it self. As you can see, that was not my most beautiful work, but in the end you won't see it that much.

After that I glued my box for the electronics. I also glued the spacers on the back of the house sigil.

Step 7: Step 7: the Electronics

For the light used in this project I've chosen a RGB Led Strip. It is very easy to connect and the brightness of the light is incredible, which you will see in the end result.

For the dutch readers, I bought mine on this website: http://www.ledstripkoning.nl/led-strips-rgb/compl...

But you can get them basically everywhere of course.

Step 8: Step 8: End Result and Files

So I finally put all the pieces together and the end result is quite amazing. Too bad the photo quality is not that great. I used the box on the back for the electronics of the LED light.
