I watched this video by DIY Perks, where he created a headset stand with wood, plexi glass and LED’s. After watching the video, i really wanted to test out the concept. I went to Clas Ohlson and picked up some plexi glass sheets, which i brought to FIX makerspace and started working.
I started out by cutting matching squares of the plexi glass and a wood plank i found
Clamped together and drilled / screwed together
Everything sanded smooth
Arduino Nano + led strip
Put it on top of my led cylinder to see the glow effekt. great success!
Using hot glue as usual
Leds spaced correctly by soldering on some header pins in between
Applying some stain for extra cool
The staining filled the cracks in the plexi, which distored the even glow
I opened it to fix the issue, and found out that the screws had cracked the plexi severely. Next time i will drill a larger hole before screwing.
