    G'day all, I got my new wagon wheel display element to testing stage today. I plan to have 4 of these side by side. Very early testing in this video. Circle (or arches) is 34 pixels (17 pixels per arch) and the 8 spokes (star) are 5 pixels each. All strip is 10 ic/30 led here
    They should look good

    Very cool, that's the kind of prop I like, multiple uses as a firework, hoop or wheel ... nice job!

    I could only aspire to doing something like that seizure star, it looks awesome.
    I have done everything on a very strict budget and old or seconds materials. I originally wanted to do some arches and one thing led to another and I ended up with this concept. So now I can do arches both ways, upper and lower as well as star patterns. It should look good when I have all 4 side by side.
    Corflute is seconds material as it had a couple of marks on it and each sheet only cost $4 each (2440 x 1220) and then I cut them in half.
    Timber frames are seconds as well @ $2.00 per 5.4 metre length.
    Rays price drop on the led strip enabled me to purchase a couple more strips which helped me change my original plans.
    Each one will cost less than $50
