Awesome work man. What brand of stain did you use for the lighter color? I have a cedar deck that I built last year that I need to stain, and am thinking about this stuff: http://www.twpstain.com/

I got some 100x5mm white 3.4v. 24ma 20,000mcd LEDs from ebay 100 for 7.00. I bought some generic license plate lights and pulled everything out . I only used the lens and back then I wired 4 LEDs in parallel I used a 180 ohm resistor on the + lead. Voila ! A really sweet looking light for almost no money! The ones I was looking at were 20-40 each . I like these better . You just mark your holes and drill with a 1 1/2 hole deep enough to flush the light then drill a 1/2 " hole for the back to go through . I maybe have 80.00 in all of these including the power supply.

The LEDs taped together in light fixture.




Recognize this Awesome light ?



Side view of awesomeness !




Finished product looks great and will last forever at 3 volts, lots of light and teh hotness !

Hell yes.

I am no bodybuilder, but I run, mountain bike, or lift at least 5 days a week, and I would LOVE to have a hot tub to sit in.

Couple more face plants and the insurance company will give you one for therapy.



The deck looks great. Very nice job.

I used Olympic max stain /toner . The lighter color is honey gold, the darker one is redwood. The pics don't do it justice ,it's way nicer in person.
