Step 1: Prepare the Base for the Elektronic
Tape the base and mark on the top where the LED´s should be. Mark the space that you need on the underside and mark on the side the place for the DC socket and the switch. Make space with a forstner drill on the underside. Drill the holes for the LED´s and the holes for the DC socket & switch. Remove the tape and polish the base with wood wax.
Step 2: The Electronic
Glue the LED´s in the base screw the switch in the base. Place the DC socket and solder the electronics as on the circuit diagram. Check if it works! Drill small holes in the base and screw it together with the swampwood. Fill the underside with filler. Find a matching piece of leather and mark the base on the underside. Cut it with a scissor and glue it on the underside.
Step 3: The Power Adapter and Finish
Open the power adapter and check with another led wich pole is plus on the original LED.Remove the original red LED and solder the new color changing clear RGB LED. Drill the LED hole in the power adapter a bit bigger. Screw the power adapter together with new screws. Check if it works. Plug the DC plug in the base, turn the switch. Check if everything is working fine and enjoy.
