LED Light | Sculpture Light with Wood, Resin & LED

Follow by Email
In this video I talk about designing and making a wood and resin light starting from a piece of hard maple that had been thoroughly chewed on by carpenter ants. I used a two part epoxy resin, tinted it blue with a transparent dye, to fill the voids created by the ants. I also added in an area where I added glow in the dark powder. Then I placed a LED strip tape inside to illuminate it. You can find links to all the materials below.

L. Martins Muita saudade. : Belíssimo,essa arte. Fiquei encantado. Martins-artes em PVC.Gravatá-Pernambuco -Brasil. Parabéns aos artistas.

Caren Barnet : Thank you for sharing your intriguing lamp. Loves your ideas...

Dirk Ryan : very cool project! i liked your idea of using saran wrap for holding in the epoxy for curing instead of melamine or some other hard surface which would just make the edges and sides perfectly smooth, uniform, and square. granted, it didn't work as planned, but i love the shape you were able to gave it w/ the grinder and sander-after-the-fact. i'm brainstorming ways to incorporate this into an outdoor deck scenario, so thanks!

Nancy Scheneman : Just caught your view, finally a video your learned as you went ,LOVE IT !!! Lamp was great. I myself have been using reclaimed wood for most and all my wood projects. I learn as I go Sometimes works great and other times it just takes a little bit more creative. Most my work Or projects are flags but I do have two projects on hold that I made with lights into a lamps With resin, of course bubbles is why I stopped,waiting for a little bit better weather. But I am going to Check out your other videos.

michael govers : Hello Katie, don't knock yourself, it's a fine piece of sculpture and it's in its imperfections, there lies its beauty ;)

Kaye Findley : This is very cool. I use a heat gun to get rid of the bubbles, and it does the trick for me, and also pour in layers, and let it set for a few hours before pouring another layer. Some people use a chef’s torch but I prefer the heat gun. I hope you will do more projects with resin, you’re lamp is lovely. New Subscriber by the way. 😉

صلاح الكندري : 👍👍👍👍

Steven Fosbrook : I attempted to turn a rotten piece of wood into a cross with led lights set in. Would have been really cool but it went horribly wrong. Took a few tips of you in this video, thanks. I think we both realise now to pour in stages and/or to coat the wood so it doesn't absorb, yet to find out what I can use for this, I am going to try to brush a thin layer of epoxy on and add several layers poured into mould every 4 hours. It's really fun isn't it :)

BLAQJAK3 : Love it
