I decided to post this project to enter the Instructable Design Competition and the Make It Glow Contest. This is a logo that my friend designed for his band (Rhyme & Reason). He gave me the opportunity to bring his band logo to life. The logo is made out of plywood covered with black vinyl, 380 RGB LEDs, 28 feet of EL Wire, and 16 feet of RGB LED strip. This LED sculpture is controlled via a wireless controller and will sit on stage just behind the drummer.
Step 1: Getting The Measurements
To get the correct dimensions I sketched the design using Google Sketchup then I transferred the measurements to the plywood. I used a jigsaw to cut the design out, then drilled out the holes for the 5mm LEDs. After a good sanding to smooth out the edges, I spray painted it black and covered the front face with vinyl using adhesive spray.
