Wow those look great! Did you make the design yourself?

Got the files on-line..

but in reality.. this would not be hard to make (even for me and my Illustrator skills are average at best!)

start with the box generator, to get the basic 'box shape'.. end the bottom to have some sort of design/legs.

the front piece can be any design you like.. a window like the above.. or words that are cut out

(I have seen many with sayings like eat, drink, love.. yadda yadda)

some $3.00 stain from your local home depot/menards... and some wood glue

one on the left is 'red mahogany' (even though it is more brown than then the bombay mahogany gloss) the one on the right is KONA.. very dark. the one above was wipe pretty hard... not sure if I should have left it as is.. or given it a 'wipe down')

oh..well.. 4 more to go.. and its a wrap! :)


There are a couple more I want to attempt as well.. these have 'living hinges' and make the design really neat looking.

thanks for the feedback!

heres a pic of an older 'lamp' (whatever) project I did a while back:

this one is bluetooth enabled/controlled..so you can change the color of the 'mood lighting' to whatever you want.. form your phone.. and any bt enabled device.

I posted the source code for this here:
post2437.html?hilit=bluetooth#p2437


all in all (outside of making the laser cut stuff).. the electronics cost only about $6.00 USD or so..
