This episode shows how to make a DIY wooden LED chandelier or pendant lamp using Rockler’s steam bending kit. This LED chandelier / hanging pendant light is part of the Rockler Bent Wood Challenge.Read More
In this video, I show how to make a DIY wireless-charging battery-powered epoxy resin LED cube lamp. Since this DIY LED cube light is battery powered and wirelessly charged it is totally portable and has a ton of uses -- a mood light, a party light, a night light, etc. The video also shows how to make the custom wireless charging pad for the epoxy LED cube, which an easy woodworking project. This LED cube light is battery-powered by a LiPO.
I used Total Boat 2:1 epoxy resin to make the cube, doing small 1/2" epoxy pours to build up the epoxy in the melamine form. All the electronics are off the shelf parts from Amazon, including the music reactive sp106e LED controller.

I made this LED pendant light from plywood, LED strips, and flexible LED channel. Since I designed this for my living room, the music syncing had to be incognito. With this in mind, I used warm white / cool white / amber LED strips, instead of RGB strips. In solid white mode, the rings give off various shades of white for a sophisticated modern look that hides the wild side when you switch the light to music visualizer mode.
The build is fairly simple. Each of the two rings is made of a stack of three plywood rings, where the middle ring has a lesser radius to create a groove for the LEDs. The rings are simple to cut using a circle cutting jig and router. While I programmed an Arduino Mega to do music visualization based on input from a microphone, you can very easily buy an off-the-shelf music controller for individually controllable LEDs, which is basically plug n’ play for the LED strips.
