LED Lamp

We used to submerge this LED remote controlled lamp into that square glass vessel.
;
It worked well until the condensation inside the LED shorted out the electronics & you don’t need to guess what happened next. This was because the vessel is filled with water beads, the kind that swell up from a pin head size to a pea size when you add water.

The idea came to put the LED underneath to get the same effect.
The bottom & top pieces of wood are out of the same piece, I think it’s maple.
The hole in the bottom piece is at the same depth as the thickness of the LED lamp & slots were machined to fit the top & bottom to hold the glass in place.

Finished with wipe on poly.
Thanks for looking.

Nice job Tony. I guess the glass was sourced locally

Thanks Karson. Yes locally. You would need to find something suitable & make the wood fit but that shouldn’t be an issue. Even a bowl or a round container would do the trick.

I like it Tony. Great idea. I’ll have to show my wife. She may want this out on the patio.
