Making a Reclaimed Wood Box Light|| How-to

We required a brand-new lamp for the basement, so we chose to develop one from reclaimed wood and led strips!

In this video we’re utilizing recovered wood from pallets to develop an indoor ceiling light, not different from a light box. The process of recovering the wood from pallets is disappointed, as it was done some time back. The light itself comes from LED strips, we utilized SMD5050 (both cold white and warm white), and is wired to a transformer. The light is designed to be soft and illuminating, but not sharp and intense as it is placed in a basement used as a media space.

Smiler fra øre til øre, kjekt å se en norsk DIY’er som gjør det bra på YouTube. Jobber på Biltema så er morsomt å se igjen produktene i bruk. Lampen ble stilig og hadde tenkt å lage en liknende variant selv, så er bra å se at idéen vil funke. 🙂

i have done some can spray painting on plexiglass sheet and i havent sand it, havent apply a primer, only apply the paint from a spray can and the paint sticks great. if you want to do the project much easy and cheaper this are good tips! 😉

love the video, my comment is could you not have just lightly sanded the plexiglass to make it frosted instead of painting it?

Beautiful works! Can this be paired with your "Room lighting control panel"? This is beautiful, if you put some color changing LEDs the atmosphere can be very comfortable and romantic.
Thanks for tutorials!

Hi. If you want to build it yourself just google for ‘woodprix’ . I know you’ll find good solutions for your idea.

I don’t know if you looked in the lighting area, but most hardware stores sell replacement lenses for overhead ceiling lights, which are already opaque.
