    Re: Corostar attempt

    Alec listen to Leeanne, she is very wise. It is very hard to judge it without being completed as its the light that creates the effect within the coro. Im sure when you get it finished you will rate it much higher.
    But what you have completed looks like it will work great and you will be more than happy with the final result

    Alec, so far it looks good. Do what I do, make 100 of something then decide you don't like them. What have you done foe the base ?

    Have you used a moisture proof MDF, if not I would recommend it. Your local cabinet maker will have some offcuts they'll give you, its suitable for kitchens and bathrooms, has a green tinge.

    Re: Corostar attempt

    Are you using the wooden/MDF base as weight to hold it down?

    Any thots on using coroplast for the base instead? Or at least using it for the bottom, to attach the LEDs to, and then attaching all of that to the MDF.

    I haven't read the original instructions to see how David M did his or what he uses to hold it down on the ground.

    It looks pretty good from here. As other have mentioned, final evaluation is probably better after the lights are added.

    Alec, looks good, might i ask why you used picture hangers instead of something else to attach the coro to the MDF?

    Re: Corostar attempt

    My guess on that is so it can be tied down to the ground with a stake or something similar...

    Re: Corostar attempt

    Looks fab, alec ... but perhaps the lights need to be diffused a tad more ... ask dm ...

    PS We do not have a clapping icon or I would have used it ...

    I found this instead [​IMG]

    alternatively, read as [​IMG]

    :D
