Step 1: You Will Need:
Piece of metal
Light bulb E14 + cord
Filament for 3d printer ( I used white PLA 1.75 mm)
Poplar plywood panels 300x600 mm
Thickness should be:
2 planes 12 mm
1 plane 4 mm
White acrylic sheet (30% light transmission, satin finish)) 400x700mm
Thickness should be 3 mm
Sander (or use sandpaper)
Step 2: Laser Cutting
Lasercut these files on the 12 mm wooden panels.
Step 3: Laser Cutting
Lasercut this file on the 4 mm wooden panels.
Step 4: Laser Cutting
Lasercut this file on the plexiglass sheet.
Step 5: 3D Printing
Print these files with your 3D printer.
Also glue in the magnet and piece of metal.
Step 6: Glue
Glue the wooden frames together.
There are two frames sized 250 mm.
Only glue one of them!
The other one will serve as a lid later.
Step 7: Closure
Drill holes for the screws on the inside of the 250mm frames.
Attach the 3D printed closure parts with the screws.
Step 8: Hinges
Using the nails, attach the hinges to the the opposite side of the frames.
Step 9: Glue Again
Glue the bottom and lid on.
Step 10: Almost Finished
Drive a screw into the lidframe.
Place the plexiglass sheet into the lid.
The closure and screw will hold it in place.
Insert the light bulb socket trought the hole, then insert light bulb.
Step 11: Finish!
Turn on the lights and voilà!
Good luck and have fun! :)
