Construye tu propia lámpara LED con dos tableros

Está claro que la iluminación LED es el futuro inmediato, pero hasta ahora los fabricantes se han limitado a ofrecernos las mismas soluciones de siempre, es decir, bombillas y lámparas de toda la vida, sin sacarle provecho a las características de esta fuente de iluminación. Por eso os propongo construir nuestra propia lámpara LED con dos tableros. La idea no es mía, sino de Frida Ottemo Fröbert y Marie Louise Gustafsson de Northern Lighting, que ofrecen la lámpara Plank a quien no se considere muy manitas, pero realmente podemos fabricarla nosotros mismos sin demasiada complicación.

I suppose it isn't exactly the right time of year for stars and lanterns, but I've got a paper folding fascination at the moment and so was drawn to a project I had wanted to do back in Autumn.

paper star lantern tutorial

During last lantern season I was looking everywhere for instructions to make these beautiful paper lanterns and couldn't find them anywhere. I ended up purchasing a lantern that was already made and since I've been struggling with some difficult folds and designs of other paper crafts, I decided to unfold the seemingly simple lantern I bought and figure the thing out for myself.

Like all traditional origami, no glue or cutting (once the basic outside shape of the paper is made) are required. F.A.T. Pull the nightstand out of the mold. Flickr: Intercambio de fotos. An ARM GNU/Linux box for $25. Take a byte! David A. Mellis - DIY manufactures open sources.

With all this talk about work schedules and approaches, I thought it would be fun to share some photos of my home office in progress.

My Desk

(See here for the story on my vintage office chairs.) Our loft has two long banks of windows. One is in our living area and the other is in our office/guest space (both these rooms are open to each other). I wanted the desk to basically run the length of the windows so an assistant could work there during the day and my husband at night. Downloads « DIYLILCNC.

Community Sandbox. Hammer Time! Bike Trailer. Building a Recumbent Bamboo Trike Frame. I've always been fascinated by bamboo and when I decided to build a recumbent trike it seemed like the obvious material choice for me. Bamboo is beautiful, light, stronger than mild steel and renewable. It does present some challenges however, as culms or poles are not perfectly round, taper from end to end and remain flexible even when cured.

So building a 3 dimensional trike frame required a lot of planning, trial & error, and some techniques to account for the variable size of the bamboo. This instructable will focus on the design and construction of the recumbent trike frame. Before building this trike, I had never built anything that moved or worked on bikes. Food - How to Make Instructables. iPhone Boombox. The following project will show you how to take 3D Solidwork's renderings and 2D Illustrator files and create a minimalist iPhone boombox. The boombox is my design and creation. Originally for a production class, I designed and created the boombox in an attempt to design, render and create using computer programs. Other goals of the object were to hide witness marks and create a minimalist and retro design.

Please feel free to contact me with questions or with photos of the boombox you create using my Instructable, especially if you use different materials or components.

Inspired by the work of Arthur Ganson and other kinetic artists, this post features some mechanical gears assembled and sculpted from various materials such as wire and cardboard. In contrast to casting traces by applying the cast material selectively to a flat surface, molded circuitry is cast into a mold.
