What are you?
Really easy project with a LED back lit image, Cut out your image you wish to have back lit from the LED’s. I used a scroll saw but depending on your image you choose you could use a jigsaw or copping saw etc.
The make a frame that is deep enough to hold the LED’s and power pack, I also had to drill a small hole in the corner to poke the remote receiver through. And I cut and chisel small dado for the power chord at the bottom
I then painted it mat black … I mean Batman… :-) and the contrast of the Rimu frame makes it look nice.
Then I put in some small cleats to hold the actual picture in the frame, and putting in the LED’s
On thing to consider when making something like this is where to hide the power pack and remote receiver if you are doing a full on more detailed image I would try leave room at the bottom of the image for this.
