Make your own Shard Light

In this video I will show you how to build a really awesome shard light.

To create this shard light you’ll need the following materials.

An LED light strip:

A piece of 12mm thick MDF
A 12×12 cm square of 1mm thick hardwood
A sheet of veneer
Two pieces of plexiglass
A 12v DC adapter,
two short pieces of wire,
and a decent length of thin two core wire (a cable from an old set of headphones is perfect for this).

You’ll also need the following tools…
A fine toothed saw,
a fine knife,
a metal ruler, a pencil, and a right-angle ruler
a clamp,
some wood glue and a brush to apply it with, and also some silicon based glue though a glue gun will also be suitable.
You’ll also need a soldering iron and solder,
Wire strippers and some scissors,
A drill with a small bit,
And lastly some finishing oil.

would look even cooler to send ur shards to go get etch with a design of something on them instead of all those scratches u got there. or etch it yourself tho i have no tools nor the knowledge how.
