This time I made a box of lamp for a gift to my mom. I set my goal this week was to explore Container Store in NYC. Since it was around Black Friday when I went there, I got a pretty good deal, it was 30% off buying all stuff there.
I knew that I didn’t really have time this week due to doing my final project. So I just bought a nice bamboo square container from the container store. Since it was on sale, I got it only $4.99. Below is the materials that I used for making this enclosure.
I wanted to make place holder for my circuit, so I needed to make sure all is measured accurately. To make exact measurement, I used digital caliper. I measured the height, weight, and thick of the box, the pile of wood, and also the components: Arduino, Breadboard, RGB Led, and battery place holder.
Cutting the piece of junk wood
Laser cut the place holder
Glue the pieces of wood for the corners.
Make a hole for switch toggle
Make holes for screws on the corners
Place everything in an enclosure, enclosure, enclosure
Screw the top lid
Color the acrylic
I didn’t actually making the circuit since I didn’t have much time. So, in the image below, I was using a led from my week 1 project. And tadaa, it doesn’t that bad actually. My mom would (hopefully) be happy with this gift.
