« Part 6: Got some oil on it Part 7 of Walnut Platform Bed series no next part

Today I installed the LED lighting on the underside of the ‘wings’ of the platform. I had to solder some connectors to the LED ribbon. It wasn’t easy as the soldering connections were small and close together, probably a pencil lead width apart. I did manage though.

Pictured are the soldered connections and one of the connectors before soldering. The remote control talks to the digital controller (white box). It has an antenna whip seen as the loose wire in the picture. I’ve included a video of the smooth transition effect from color to color.

Yup, I’ve got to deliver it to the kid about 250 miles away in NY after the first of the month. We’ll put it together and make it up for a good picture. I’ll post it as a project at that time. Thanks Grizz.

Real Hi-Tech must be a fun project. Nice work on the head board as well.

Yes Grizz. Just waiting for a few pictures from the place it’s set up in. Then I’ll post it as a project.
