How to Make a Flash Wall Light

About: Come spend some time in the shop. I'm a hobbyist woodworker and professional computer geek in Northern California. I guess my projects will vary widely, and I have no clue what I plan to make next...

This is a radiant wall light, or I suppose, simply a Flash Light! It was made with wood source exclusively from my scrap bin!

I used three maple cutt offs and ripped them all down to 3/4" and then glued them up into a mini butcher block. The idea for the this project came to me after the glue up! So I drew the design and cut it out on the band saw.

Soldering is something I don't do enough to be good at it, so please forgive my meager skills! The circuit works and the lights come on, so I'm calling it good! :)

    You're right! but if you started with a single board and just cut it with a jigsaw, you could eliminate the table saw, band saw, planer and all that messy glueup!
