Day 1: Starting the build

the first thing we had to plan out was where we were going to place the LEDs, as you can see in the photo below we penciled out the lines to double check the LEDs were equally spaced out and had enough space to fit the wooden frame around the cardboard backing.

Once we got the frame to fit the cardboard backing, we cut of the excess cardboard and began wrapping the the top with tin foil.

Once we had wrapped all of the top with tin foil we began punching the LEDs holes through and stuck the frame to the cardboard using wood glue, we also included the extra bit of frame to raise the foam up once we attach it.
