In the process of putting this together but am adding somespecial effects to it as I go along. I have a 21' hallway that I plan ondividing up the LED strip into 18 lamp sections. At each end of the hallwaywill be the PIR and depending on which direction you enter the hallway the PIRactivates the LED strip to sequence each section in the direction of yourtravel. Eventually I will add additional PIR sensors to have each section lightup along the way while the prior LED section turns off behind you.
Oak is a nice wood for an airtight but should be mixed with some other hard wood, (Maple,iron wood, beech, etc) as oak burns very hot and also much quicker than other hardwoods due to it being a very low density wood. I use oak in my wood furnace that heats my entire house (Continental Hybrid 150) but I always ensure to add other hardwood types in the mix..
I agree a Darlington would be a little more reliable in case of heat!
Looks good! Would like to see something along the lines of using addressable RGB strips!
Try soaking them in wine! Black Cherry Chips in a red wine, doesn't have to be an expensive wine.
