Default Re: My Columns with LED lighting

That look great christo. It's amazing how far led lights have come in only a few years. Will add a nice feature to the oven area. I thought the driver had to be matched to the power of the leds that were attatched? Or is the driver just to put out a regulated 12dc supply?
thanks

The controller puts out PWM'd 12V and there are current limiting resistors in the flexible LED circuit board to keep from blowing up the LEDS.

Totally cool!

You don't need a disco ball, but you'll definitely need a white and black polyester suit.

My aunt and uncle make those glass blocks with the Christmas lights inside. My uncle says it takes a drill press going in just the right speed to do it well. Too fast, and they break; too slow and they heat up too much.

So what are you gonna do for the overheads, Christo? You can't have all that going on on the columns and not have anything to match it going on overhead. Chinese lanterns are too tame and disco balls are too cheesy - and I don't mean the kind of cheese you put on the pizza!

Seriously though, that looks really good. I'm totally jealous!

Well - if you promise not to tell my wife...

I'm going to carefully cover the big tall elm tree that covers the left side of the patio in white light strings - so at night my wife can have the fairy lights she talks about when she says whats missing....

That combined with the uplighting and down lighting from the other trees should cast a favorable glow on the entire patio.

Just too cool Christo!! Yeah, my wife did not want the color changing lights and the remote control for the pool and spa when we built it, but she likes them now, so there is hope
