How To Build A DIY Light Box Sign with LASERS!

Build article: In this video, I’ll show you how to build a DIY light box sign using inexpensive LED lights. I made my light box into a sign, but there are tons of options! You could turn it into wall art for your kid’s room or game room, or even make a similar sign for your business’ lobby. Enjoy!

Love it, dude! I really like how the colored LEDs came out. Wish I would have gone with those. Enjoy the sign!

Nice one! Last lightbox I made just used cut vinyl and you can see the bubbles, I’ll have to give this a try with my cheap laser engraver.

ManCraftingTM says:

I’m doing this. I have a maker Fair on Feb 4th. That would be a cool multipurpose add on. Of course I’ll do something a little different since I’m not as heavy into the wood working as you.

Downtime Media says:

This is awesome! Might just have to bust one of these out for my next project!

ManCraftingTM says:

I think the lights are the issue more than the paint. I don’t think you’ll get nearly as bright light from a battery pack.

Nice project! Johnny, came out nice. >:)…JP

Bruce A. Ulrich says:

Cool, turned out nice! You could always hit the white paint with a bit of 320 grit sandpaper. It should soften the amount on there and diffuse it rather than block it.

Heath Knuckles says:

Awesome build! The sign looks great!!

Jackman Works says:

Sweet! I’ll be curious to hear how long the battery pack lasts for you.

Making Stuff says:

hey man, great work. I recommend the LED Modules, they are specifically design for signs, you can turn easily because they are connected by cables instead of being a continues strip. Example:
