3 inventive lighting projects using LED strips

In this video I will be showing you how to build three unique lighting projects at home using LED strips. Here are the quality strips that I used: amzn.to/2yto0BQ

I specifically used the 'daylight white 5600k' strips, but the other colour temperatures are great too. Here's an ebay listing of the 5600k variety: ebay.to/2iSqEKu

And an ebay listing of selectable colour temperatures: ebay.to/2zCThDr

    We both really enjoy your videos, and they have been a huge inspiration for us. Actually, almost two years ago, we decided to make your LED mushrooms, and that was what snowballed into our own channel. Your video and content quality leaves very little to be desired. If we ever create videos half as good as yours, I'll consider the THmy project a success. Thanks for all your videos, Matt! /Hansi

    For the LED ring to cement, try adding medium size cotton balls to act as clouds, the light shines nicely through them.

    I'm almost done building the first project ! Great idea , the shadowless lighting is huge for me and the high CRI I love, wish it were brighter even though I doubled the run of leds on the arc, I also used cylindrical molds for space efficiency and used and Xt-60 connector for the power and I made a wood top instead of the rocks . Wish the leds were more tightly spaced it would be awesome considering the built in heat sink of the project

    Awesome project yet again, Matt, you are always an endless inspiration to us fellow creative people (and all those who just enjoy watching because of your quality content).

    I love the way you brought this together! I have spent many years supplying and advising customers on LED lighting application. These DIY options are fantastic and I will be using this to illuminate my garage. I'd love to share when I complete it. Thanks for the great ideas!

    Thank you for sharing Matt. Although I don’t craft with aluminum there were some good conceptual tips I picked up in this video that I’m planning to try in my own tinkering projects. Hoping to see more of your inspirational ideas.

    Love the video! I've been experimenting with a bunch of different LED projects myself, and found that you can save some "elbow grease" by using clear Leak Seal spray instead of sanding the shade to get the frosted effect. Sanding took over a half hour, spraying Leak Seal took two minutes (1 minute to shake the van and 1 minute to spray the sheets 😁)

    My dad made a standup lamp recently after he got the idea from the 2nd light you made here.

    The one with the crumply aluminium foil actually does look a lot like a frosted glass window. It's really quite nice looking. Very cool!

    You have created some amazing projects. Can’t wait for the next ones. Love the the RGB crystal tower.

    Hey nice video! I built something quiet similar some years ago. I built a wooden arc from plywood and countersink the LED stripe in it. To fix it onto my table I used small aluminium clamps and gave the ply wood some layers of painting that let it look like real wood. :) Now having seen your video and your Concrete Audio Nob I see how I can improve my version of the light quiet a bit ;)

    Great ideas with style! Thanks!! Regarding the wall lights, cut one acrylic sheet 1/2 inch narrower and make it the outer sheet of the shade. This creates a 1/4 inch light border on the top and bottom, also giving the shade a dimensional effect.

    So fun, excited to try the first and third project! Definitely would be super useful as a student in a dark studio!

    Great video, very creative and cool techniques! Thanks for listing the products used. What thickness of aluminum do you prefer, please?

    Just a suggestion for future videos, you might want to let people know that you can use wood tools on aluminum because of the metals softness, just so people don't spend needlessly. Thanks for making incredible free content!

    I love watching how these DIY projects come to life. 👌🏽
