this is great. i wish it had a lamp shade to go on the underside.

I have a roll of LED strips like this that are gathering dust, where did you learn what to solder and where? I have a soldering iron but really know nothing about wiring, and I'd like to do something similar to what you've done here.

Fantastic build btw!!

Thanks Roykinn7,
I think my usb powered led strip was 50cm long, I cut it into 3 and looped the power at one end with a soldering iron, you need to connect the three +(positive) terminals together with wire and the three -(negative) terminals together with wire.
hope this makes sense and I've added a pic to help.

This clears it up, thanks, looks pretty simple! This may be a stupid question, but what kind of wire should be used? I imagine their's certain gauges, could I salvage some wires from an old alarm clock or something?

I only used a thin guage wire as it is only run off a usb, old alarm clock wires should be ok
