I went to SuperBrightLEDs.com. Wow, there are a lot of items to choosed from. I'm interested in doing an LED/Acrylic project but I need to know what to but. Can you tell me which power supply and connector you used?

Thanks,

Phil

Here's what I bought:
Qty Product/Options Price/Ea
1 NFLS-NW30X3-WHT Natural White 15.95
2 NFLS10-2CHCPS Adapter CPS Cable Clamp 3.49
2 CPS-12VDC-6W 6 Watt - 12VDC 10.95

Note that the power supply is less expensive at Amazon.com. I suspect equivalents for the others might be too.

Another note: The viewing is best from the back side. So if there is any text, it will be best if you mirror it before carving.

That is an exceptional Cthulhu design, with the right level of menace and fun. Now I really want to make one of these for my 14-month old daughter, who we used to put to sleep with "cthulhu sleeps"!
