rings of saturn led music visualizing pendant light
Since this is what I designed for my living room, the music sync has to be kept secret.
With this in mind, I used warm White/cold white/amber LED strips instead of RGB ones.
In pure white mode, when you switch the lights to music visualization mode, the ring exudes a variety of white colors, a sophisticated modern look that hides the wild side.
Each of the two rings consists of three plywood rings, where the radius of the middle ring is small and a groove can be created for the LEDs.
It is simple to cut the ring using a circular cutting fixture and router.
When I program the Arduino for music visualization based on the input of the microphone, you can easily get an off-the-
The shelf music controller of the LED that can be controlled separately is basically the plug-and-play of the LED light strip.
I have included most of the build below and the video will guide you through the build process.
I will be back soon to update this structure with more build details.
Or, leave any questions in the comments section and I will be happy to answer them.
Flexible LED channel: Plywood: circular cutting fixture: Dewalt router: link to off-the-

This makes it easier to switch mode, music sync led installation)
, But note that a separate controller is required for each ring. -
LED music controller with remote control and power supply: Use the above controller with one of the following three LED strips :-
Warm white/cold white/Amber that can be controlled separately (WWA)
LED light bar :-
Warm white LED light strip with temperature control alone :-
Individually controllable rgb led strip: link to the LED part I used to build: SK6812 WWA individually controllable LED strip: Arduino Mega Clone: resident microphone: RF receiver and remote control [Note -
The picture shows a fixture saw, but I am using a router with a circular cutter clamp.
Since there is not a router long enough to go through two 1/2 plywood sheets, I made several mistakes.
Make sure the router bit you get is 1.
25 \"long, you will avoid it. ]
Each ring is actually a stack of three rings that are glued together.
The top and bottom rings in each stack are the same, made of 1/2 \"walnut veneer plywood.
The middle ring is made of 3/4 \"standard plywood (
And the diameter of the middle ring is less than 1 \"(i. e. , 0. 5\" less radius)
Than the ring at the top and bottom, so the stack forms a channel for the LED profile.
Cutting the ring with a circular cutting fixture is the easiest.
Fold the 1/2 walnut plywood together and screw it together so you can cut the rings on the top and bottom at the same time.
When cutting each stack of rings, you will want to start working from the outside, so cut in the following order: 1.
Cut the outer radius of the top and bottom ring from the walnut plywood. (
I cut them into 42 \"diameter. )2.
Shorten the distance from the circular cutting fixture to the router by 0. 5\" (
Therefore, the diameter of the resulting ring is less than 1 \")
And then cut the outer radius of the middle ring (
I cut 41 in diameter. )3.
Shorten the circular cutting fixture by one more. 5\" (
So the diameter is 40 \")
And then cut the inner radius of all rings.
Then repeat Step 1-
3 smaller rings.
Fold the 3 rings and stick them together with wood glue.
Take the time and try to make sure that the inner radius on all three rings is as flush as possible. Use 3/4\" (
Or 5/8 \"if you can find it)
Walnut edges for the outer radius of the top and bottom rings in each stack.
Actually, I applied the edge seal at the outer radius before gluing, but I think you can do this just as easily after gluing.
Cover the inner radius using 2 \"walnut edge.
If the inner radius of all three rings in each stack is not completely flush, you will want to flush them before doing so.
The grinder is useful in this regard, but you can do this using any type of grinder.
I put two layers of Danish oil on each ring and stacked a chimney-
Just like the hole through the middle channel and the hole at the top of each ring, make a path for connecting to the LED strip.
Use the adhesive backing on the LED light strip to adhere it to the middle ring in each ring stack.
Or, use some CA glue to make sure the LED light strip doesn\'t fall off.
I cut the back of the LED channel so I can stick the LED strip directly to the wood ring and there is more space between the LED and the diffuser on the channel.
This leads to a more solid look for better light diffusion and light (
Instead of the point that LED light strips often produce).
I then bend the LED channel into the rough shape of the ring, cut it into size with a diagonal saw, and use CA glue to adhere it to a channel stacked from three rings.
I wrap the tape around the end of the passage to make sure it stays in place when the glue is dry.
This may be the foundation of the whole structure itself.
As I studied, I experienced many iterations of electronic configuration.

Warning, very rough)
