Here's a relatively easy weekend project that will yield astonishing results!
With a few hours and some handy materials you can build your own LED night light.
My first trial took about 5 hours of continuous work to design and fabricate the finished product.
After several trials, it took an average of 2 - 4 hours in the shop before I've finished making one complete night light. This is mostly due to the amount of soldering and wiring that had to be done for each LED.
In the end, I feel it was well worth the effort.
Step 1: Step 1: Gather your materials
-Handheld Screw Driver with various bits and drivers (varies according to size of LEDs)
-5mm RGB LEDs
-Speaker Wire (I used 20 AWG)
-1 AA Battery Holder w/ Switch
-Flat Black Spray Paint
-1 piece of Wood
-1 Sheet of Vellum
Step 2: Step 2: Strip the wood
Next, you'll want to cut those two pieces of wood into two 22", 18" and either 7" or 12" pieces.
(I chose the 12" length)
Keep in mind that I used only one piece of wood that was about 6' x 3" so be sure to measure twice and cut once.
