Argh! Serves me right for creating both the instructable and thingiverse project at the same time. Forgot to put in the link.. Ok, front page of the 'ible now updated with the thingiverse and tinkercad links. Sorry!
My bad ... you're right ~ I buggered the link. Here's the thingieverse project: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2053444 And here's the tinkercad project: https://www.tinkercad.com/things/9TQ2h8M5BmZ
Assuming each bank of cells is 3.7 volts (standard voltage for an 18650 lithium ion cell), each "layer" will add 3.7v to the total.So two layers of cells would be (3.7 x 2) 7.4v, six layers would be (3.7 x 6) 22v ... The red tower on the front is 14 layers high, so 51 volts. :-)
Sorry it took so long for me to see this...I've updated the first step to include the thingiverse and tinkercad links.

Looks great! (esp compared to the $40 to purchase a pre-made led shop light..!) I've been thinking about making vs. buying and I think you just made my mind up for me!Couple questions:--did you use the entire roll on the light you made?--did you cut the light strip into sections..? How was that done? Is it a simple "snip here at the marked spot and solder" or something more involved?Thanks!
