Step 1: Step 1: Materials and Tools
tools and parts for this project.
Circuit Board/PC Board
2 (3.5V) high output LEDs
9V Battery and Holder
Switch that turns off when pressed
Step 2: Step 1: Putting Together the Circuit Board
Solder the positive lead from the battery to another wire and solder that wire to one of the
leads off the switch. Then take another wire and solder that to the other lead of the switch.
Then solder that wire to the LED. Take the negative lead off the battery and solder it to the other
lead on the LED that is available.
Make sure your wires are long enough the switch can reach the part of the lid where you are putting it. So it looks like this.
Step 3: Step 2: Cutting the Lid
the hollow part of the lid from the inside. Go all the way around so you can replace it
when you are done. You also need to cut a small hole big enough for your switch
somewhere on the edge of the inner part of the lid. That way when the lid is closed it will come in contact with the lower part of the chest and push the switch. We chose the top because it was easier with the lid we had. Should look like this.
Step 4: Step 3: Putting It All Together
Then stick the switch on so it gets pressed when you close the lid.
As the final step tape the lid back together and TA-DA you're done!
