« Part 10: Wooden box, using Adjustable box joint jig for tablesaw Part 11 of How I made series Part 12: Premium Homemade Router Table - part1 »

It all started by asking myself how to use a walnut board with a natural edge, which left from some other project. I wanted to put a plexiglas between two such boards, but I later changed my mind and decided to use only one board, because it seemed visually to me more tempting. For the light source I used a LED strip that illuminates the side of the plexiglass, giving an interesting visual effect. The ability to adjust the intensity and color of the light is convenient for obtaining the appropriate ambient conditions.

Another idea I will shamelessly steal!

Although I am thinking about art-deco-ish wall sconces for my living room wall. I will have to dream on this for a while…

Nice work!

Very nice! Do you have a link to your source for the LED?

If you changed this to a warm light, I reckon that it would be very awesome in the garden to light up the lawn or your walkway! It’s a very interesting project that I’m eager to try my hand at!
