Hi great video! Thanks fore sharing! Have you tried using Frosted or colored Acetate sheets instead of using clear ones? https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_nr_p_72_1?fst=as%3Aoff&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3AFrosted+Acetate+sheets%2Cp_72%3A2661619011&keywords=Frosted+Acetate+sheets&ie=UTF8&qid=1534656502&rnid=2661617011

Hey Matt I love your channel! I was wondering which UK power supply you would recommend for the led lights you used on the last project I was considering trying to create an almost flush mounted ceiling light using a 5 metre roll of leds I'm creating a VR room with my Oculus Rift and as I'm 6.4 tall so I wanna have lighting for the room without taking up space I can't use recessed lighting because my water tank is above the room I'm trying to light.

A 12v 6A power adapter should do the trick! Or, if you want the LEDs to last longer you could use a 19v laptop adapter and power the LEDs with it with two strips in series (so they get 9.5v each).

Thanks for an interesting video which I enjoyed learning from. Can you tell me what is the life of LED strip in your experience. The reason I ask is that I want to embed some LED strip in a piece of furniture covered with a glass panel, and once in it will not be accessible so it is important that the LEDs have a decent life span. Many thanks.

Cheap led strips are not always bad, I have a strip $7.00 5m strip running off my computers power supply for around 5 years now and none have gone out yet and I have not noticed any dimming. Now this may be due to the power supply running at a easy 11v so they are being under driven, and I do agree about the color rendering it is not the best but it just fine for under desk lighting

I am constructing a similar project myself and would like to know the specifics of the power adapter used to power the LEDs. I am making a desk light with, give or take 12 LEDS. Would 12v and 1A be enough? I know that they need 12volts but im not sure about the amps. If anyone could help me put that would be very much appreciated. Thank you

Those LEDs will fuck your eyes. You need a light source you cannot see, illuminating the object you mess with... Also good luck for maintenance in the concrete block.

So for the 2. One you can use difuser from broken tv/monitor.. I usually have some at home so i use them but if you don't maybe you can ask some tv mechanic to give you some from broken tv cuz he don't really need them..
