Hi RobP16,There are a few answers to your question...1. I wanted to attain a decent thickness for stability. (TimW82 is correct) Two sheets of thinner material was also cheaper than one very thick sheet.2. The second sheet is slightly larger which overlaps and hides the rough edges of the whole that I cut into the table. I used a clear acrylic for the lower sheet because it was cheaper than the opaque sort. Hope that answers your questions :)
Hi Jomanidk,I'm afraid I know literally nothing about electronics. I bought the adapter from the same place that supplied the LED strips. I'd take a photo of the transformer but it's all sealed inside the table. I used some similar LED strips to light the footwells of an old van I had years ago and they were hooked up to the car battery which was also 12V. It definitely works though! Lol
Now this is a pro build! Well done TimW82! Thanks for sharing the pictures. Your improvements are excellent.
