Step 1: Cutting
I cut out the first batman logo for the front and then a 2nd logo but this one was reduced in size.this one will be used on the back to attach the led strip lights to. I used a CNC to cut this out but they could be cut out with a jigsaw.
Step 2: Paint
I used a black board paint to paint the front panel. I appalled 3 coats.
Step 3: Back Panel
I attached the back panel with some wood glue and and screws. In the center you can see where I cut a keyhole with the CNC so the light could be hung on the wall. you could also use a drill to make a hole to hang the light up on the wall.
Step 4: LED
The LED strip lights do come with a sticky back but I've always found this not to be any good so I used hot glue that work out great.
Step 5: Soldering
I cut off the remaining unneeded LED strip lights. the strip light can be cut at the point marked on the LED strip lights. Once cut I could solder the cables to the points marked on the LED strip lights. be sure to get the orientation of the positive and negative correct these cables will go to a transformer. where they will plug into the mains. and that's it the light is finished.
