A bookcase is bound to be built on authors.
Step 1: Step 1: Materials
2- A Drill
3 - 1.5 meter LED and 12V adapter
4 - Soldering Iron and Solder
5 - A can of spray paint (Black or your choice)
6 - Some connection stuff
Step 2: Step 2: Set the Form
The important point is making the decision of the font. I used "Impact", because it's a compact font with bold glyphs, making our bookshelves stronger with a low percentage of spaces in the shelf
Step 3: Step 3: Here we go! Let's cut the parts with CNC
Step 4: Step 4: We are painting the "bookshelf"
You had better refrain from painting the backside, so as to keep the reflection of light at it's optimum.
Step 5: Step 5: We are starting to locate the LED's
It's not a complicated process.
By using a soldring iron, bond plus to plus ends, minus to minus ends. That's all.
Step 6: Step 6: Now connect the parts
Step 7: Step 7: Finally!
The cream panel seen in the backside is the placeholder of the wall. I have made my design of the bookcase to be placed in the corner of a room, using the walls as the backside of the bookcase.
This corner will be utilized as a bookcase. But there is more!
The LEDs also provide an inviting ambiance for the room, and especially the books. Go bibliophils!
If you haven't got any books yet, you can start to buy some :)
Keep in mind, that not the books support and glorify the names, but the names do it for the books.
