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
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.
