Fiber optic lighting can be a mesmerizing lighting to your room. It can add a new mood to your room and make your room become an excellent place for your family. This light is commonly used in theaters to illuminate the dark when it is needed. In home use, it is usually used to light up the ceiling's inner part to provide glow. In a dinner party, it is usually placed on a table to add ambiance.
With an artistic table, this lamp will be a good additional accessories and lighting to your home. Here are some ways which you can do to make the table for your fiber optic lamp.
The first thing you have to do is to prepare for the plywood. Cut it horizontally into 6 feet and vertically into 4 feet. It will be an ideal size for your diner table with fiber optic lamp.
Make a cutout in the middle of the plywood by using a jigsaw with the measurement of 5 feet in horizontally and 1 foot in vertically.
Then, slash two pieces of plywood with the measurement of 4 feet high by 5 feet wide. Then, slash two pieces into 4 inches high by 1 foot wide. Then, fasten those four pieces together using nails or screw. Drill some 1 inch hole on the 1 foot wide wood. It will be the way for the fiber to go through. Then, connect the box precisely under the opening. Use your nails or screw to fasten it. It will display your fiber optic lights later.
The next thing you have to do is to polish the table and paint it. In order to make the light illuminated by the lighting pop up in the dark, go for the dark color. As the options, you can consider black or dark brown. Some other alternatives are dark green, dark purple or dark blue.
After the paint is dry, insert one fiber optic ribbon into each 1-inch holes you have made before. You can use some different colors to make it look interesting. Attach them securely on the wood. Then, connect each ribbon end to the illuminator.
Keep the illuminator under the table securely by using screw and steel strap. Hook the illuminator up to the power source which is close to the table. Instead of electricity power, you can go for the illuminator with battery-powered.
Then, put the fiber optic box on the top of the two PV columns with 4 feet high each. Paint those columns with the same color as your tabletop. Hold them to the place using nails and screws. Place the fit-sized glass on the table top. After making sure that everything's ready, the last thing you have to do is to test the illuminator by turning it on.
