Marvin Night Light

One of the projects, which was scheduled some time ago, was the construction of a personalized presence light. For this project I decided to use a wooden base with an Arduino and a figure printed in 3D. First the bases were cut. Due to the low height of the wood it was necessary to cut two pieces, prepare them and to glue it. Two circles were cut into pine wood with approximately 14 cm in diameter, each. The first was cut with a jigsaw, but due to the fact that this was a time consuming process, I decided to cut the second on the table saw and end up with the belt sander. After that, it was necessary to perfect both in order to be without imperfections. The bases were glued with wood glue, clamped and dried for 24 hours. After that time, the sides of both parts were aligned with a router with a flush trim bit. This bit allows you to level out a part using the bearing area as guide. Next, it was necessary to create the cavity to house the electronics and the socket for the figure. To create these cavities was used, again, the router with a straight bit. Finally, I made the finishing touches. Create a profile all around with a ogee bit and varnish with matt wood varnish.”
