Tell us about yourself!
Juan, thanks for the interest. You could splice the wires, however I would strongly discourage it. My fear without solder is that the connection could come loose mid-flight and cause the drone to fly erratically, at best, and crash and hurt someone at worst.
Thanks for your interest! I finished using MINWAX ‘Special Walnut’. I applied a single coat with a brush. It only used about a quarter to a half of the can. Also, I didn’t coat with laquer or poly.

Thanks again for the input, Matt. I corrected the size of the T&G boards, and added the finished dimensions to the project.
Matt, thanks for posting. I'm glad this Instructable was able to help you build one. In regards to the dimensions, the width of the usable portion of the T&G planks is about 6 3/4" I've attached a few photos to clarify. I will add a few more specific dimensions per your request, to help others on the site build with greater ease. Let me know if you have any other questions or comments. Also, I'd love to see the chest you built!
Thank you Rob, I appreciate it!
Thanks a lot ThirdEarth! I hope to post many more as I continue doing projects.
Thanks Jeff, I appreciate it.
Thanks Donalds113 for the interest. If I had to guess, I'd say around 40 pounds. There are an infinite numbers of variations you could use in your design. I hope this Instructable serves you well!
Thanks Swansong for the compliment! My wife had the idea to add the actuators to protect young fingers from getting hurt! Glad you enjoyed the Instructable!
Rustic Wood Chest ToyboxView Instructable »
I'm planning on making 4 separate panels (identical) with about 500 pixels each. Could I use one controller, and just run data to each panel? Or would it be easier to install 4 separate PPs and network them together. Obviously 1 PP would be cheapest, but if the programming would be easier with 4, it may be worth the extra money.
I'm finding a lot of WS2811, not 2801s online, would those work with the pixel pusher? I know they're a 3 wire unit, I wasn't sure if the Pixel Pusher was compatible with these. Also, I noticed the PP is limited to 25 amps. But your display looks like it's more than 50 amps total. How do you power the pixels, if the power exceeds the 25 amps per PP?
