whY?

I’m always asking everybody one question……..Why?

Now it’s my turn.  So why did I created this LED driven art piece, called,  glowing whY? Simple. I fell in love with this piece of wood at Heritage Salvage and wanted to combine woodworking with my usual techie electronics stuff.

The wood is Chocolate Acacia, which I sanded and finished it with polyurethane. On the back, I imbedded 279 LEDs to provide backlit colors of your choosing via a remote control. It’s cool to create a mood based on whatever you’re feeling – red, green, purple, pink, rainbow, or my favorite blue.
