My little sister needed a new wall light for her dressing.
She asked me to give it the looks of a spotlight with the wide beam angle of a regular light.
The result is this wall light.
The total cost was around 35 dollar.
Step 1: Materials and tools
- Wooden board (MDF 12mm)
- LED (BRIDGELUX - BXRA-W0401-00000 - ARRAY, WARM WHITE, 400LM)
- Power supply (12v)
- LED driver (700ma)
- Opal glass
- Round pinfin heat sink (80 mm)
- Two screws (M3)
- Two wall plugs
- Two hook screws
- Pair of compasses
- Solder iron
- Diamond drill bit (40 mm)
- Drill bit (45 mm, 40 mm, 6 mm)
- hole saw (90 mm)
- Miter saw
- Glue gun
- Wood glue
- Bar clamps
Step 2: Drawing
Start with two pieces of 10 cm by 40 cm. and one piece of 8 cm by 1 cm
The material I used was MDF (12 mm thick).
I had them precut at a local wood shop, but you could easily saw them yourself from a bigger piece.
Take the two 10 cm By 40 cm pieces and make a mark from each end straight in the middle at 5 cm.
Take a pair of compasses and draw a half circle (10 cm in diameter) on each mark.
Take one piece and draw a line 1 cm from the edge of each long side.
Draw a line in the middle of each piece from the long side to the opposite long side.
