Introduction: Mojito Recipe in Plexiglass Blue Lighting

About: I enjoy using my hands to create something and then share it!!!!!

I wrote on plexiglass the mojito recipe and then I create a small led circuit that I insered in a frame around plexiglass.

For the mojito recipe I designed it on Photoshop and then I reverted the image in order to write it on the good position on the plexiglass.

It is pretty cheap DIY and it is a low comsuption energy system because you can use 2x 1,5v battery or 3x 1,2v battery.

Step 1: Print Your Model

Print your reverse image and then stick if on plexiglass.
To engrave it I used a dremel with a small peak.

The plexiglass is a 0,5mm thick.

Step 2: Create Your Lighting Frame

I purchase a kind of plastic bar that I could easily cut and clip on plexiglass.
To create the frame, cut 4 bars and then cut in diagonal thanks to a miter box to do the perfect frame.

Step 3: Insert Your LED Circuit in Your Frame

For the circuit, I used 7 LEDs which work between 1,5 and 3,6v which change the light intensity.
I inserted my LEDs in the frame with a small screw driver and then I put the plexiglass.



Step 4: Choose Your Power

You have 3 different choice to powered your lighting frame!!
2x AA 1,5V
3x AA 1,2V
1x transformer at 3V

It is your choice if you want a nomad recipe or a fixed lamp in a bar or anywhere.

Enjoy and Try it !!!

    Which type of led did you use and how did you insert them into the strip

    Sorry for this late answer but I simply used 5 mm blue led that I insert with a small wood peak.

    It is important to have the same led serie which work on the same voltage.

    Hope it helps :)

    Do you have a complete and detailed instructions list with materials because i want to have fun with instructable and make a glass cook book.
    Thanks and much appreciated.

    I can give you more information if you want, just ask me and I could give you pictures and tips that's instructables spirit :)

    Very nice. This would be a cool use for a CNC router.

    How long did it take you to do all that engraving by hand?

    It is true that it takes few hours especially to write letter. It took 2 hours but it is quite tiring and thé dremel is heavy. But the result is pretty cool!!
    But if you try a simpliest model! I did an other one in 10minutes
