My somewhat geeky wall art (star wars fans, come on in)


So I've lived in this house for six years and have always wanted to build something for the alcove in the wall. I had my xbox stand there for a while, but I finally decided to build something for it that has been on the back of my mind for a long time. I used 864 leds to light it up, and from almost any room in the house you can tell its on, and from down the street too.

Anyway, on to pics.
Drawing the layout


Making some dust


Cutting complete


Formica on


Plexi inserts


Closeup


Installed


And the overkill night shot


I think it even shines on the neighbors house a bit, I remember thinking that i wanted it to be able to glow during the day so the white would look bright, which it does well

now for the geeky part, the inspiration:
