Step 1: Tetrominoes
As other electronic geeks I spent a lot of time playing Tetris. So I decided to use the slats to create a TetrisLamp which contains fairy lights.
This step describes how I created the Tetrominoes.
I was able to create 3 of them. That' s all I got out of the 2 wood slats I had.
So I first made the parts for the 3 Tetrominoes regarding the sheet shown below.
The measures are in cm. The wood slats were 1,6cm thick and I wanted the parts to look like assembled from 10cm cubes.
Before I painted the Tetrominoes I had to create holes for the cable of the fairy lights.
I wanted the lamp to hang on a wall with an invisible mounting. So I added holes to the blue part which match the screws I used as the mounting. These screws have an angle on the end.
Be sure not to bore these holes through completely.
After I painted the parts, I added colored construction paper on the front, in the same color I' ve chosen for the wooden parts. The paper was fixed using construction glue. I tried to exert pressure during drying using big and heavy books.
After the parts of my TetrisLamp were finished, I was able to assemble them.
The parts were fixed with screws.
