Step 1: CD Cutting
Use a band saw to cut your 10 cd's in half pieces.
Step 2: Laser Cutting
Download this DXF file, and laser Cut these two pieces using 4 or 5 Mm MDF, Plywood or Plexiglass.*
Step 3: CD Assembly
Start by putting 3 or 4 cds between the two laser cut pieces.
The joints have a 1Mm. width, so the cd's fit by pressure.
Step 4: Socket
Add the light bulb socket.
We considered a 30.5 MM. diameter socket, so it can be placed also press-fit mode.*
You can customize this circle diameter in the DXF file, according to the socket you find.
Step 5: Wiring
Connect the wire with the socket and the electric plug.
Step 6: Light Bulb
Add your light bulb.
We used an RGB light bulb that can be controlled with an IR remote control.
And now you are ready to enjoy!
