Introduction: Spiderweb Book Light
the spiderweb book light is a new type of booklight that only centers light on the book and almost nowhere else, it also creates even lighting throughout the whole page
PS: this is my first instructable
umm so yeah im kinda new to this stuff
i don't care if u criticize it and whatnot but please be nice
Blue or white LED's or u can get any color, be creative
Resistors - don't burn the poor LED's
Plexiglass - I love this stuff
Plexiglass cutter - Must need to cut plexiglass well unless your using a saw, that works too
2-6 hours - matters on how nice u want it to look and ur skills
Reflective tape - more than doubles the brightness of the book
Solder and soldering iron
an old but nice looking folder - not a must need, but it makes it look 10 times nicer
Someone that will listen to u constantly saying "LOOKY MOMMY! LOOK AT WHAT I MADE! ISN'T AWESOME? HUH MOMMY? IS IT?"
...yes i actually said most of that to my mom
but hey! give me a break I'm still too young to drive and i don't have my own house
first cut your plexiglass
i got a nasty cut from a shard of plexiglass refusing to break
but the sharper ur blade is and more times u deepen your cut into the plexiglass the less likely it is to cut you
drill holes big enough for LED's to fit in them
for this mini booklight i only used 2 white LED's
but u can use more
cover the sides with reflective tape
you'll probably have to cut the reflective tape into smaller strips
solder your LED's, battery clips, resistors, and switch together
make a sleek cover/handle from the folder and turn it on!
now pat yourself on the back and go show your success to your mommy
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
