How to make a light bulb shaped, wooden lamp

Recently I came up with the idea, of making a light bulb shaped lamp. I designed the paths of my lamp in illustrator and then I used my CNC machine to carve the lamp, out of an 18mm (thickness) piece of plywood.

After the piece was done, I used an exacto knife to cut the little wood pieces that hold everything together and sanded the whole lamp with 180 grit sand paper.

I cut the led strip to length and soldered everything together. 

I then attached the strip on the lamp using it’s own adhesive.

I connected the wires with the power supply. It is important to ask your electrical supplies retailer in order to use the correct power supply, depending on the leds you will use.

I secured the wires in place with hot glue.

I hanged the piece on the wall, plugged it in and my lamp was ready.
