This beer die table with LED lights is a great way to step up your game when hosting friends for a night of fun. By adding LED lights to the table, you add an element of excitement and visual interest that will make your guests want to keep playing. Plus, the table is easy to make and can be customized to fit any decor. Here’s how to make your own beer die table with LED lights:
1. Start by finding a table that is the right size for your space. You will also need LED strip lights, a power supply, beer cups, and dice.
2. Attach the LED strip lights to the underside of the table using double-sided tape or another adhesive. Make sure that the lights are evenly spaced and pointing downward so that they will illuminate the playing surface.
3. Connect the power supply to the LED strip lights and plug it into an outlet.
4. Place beer cups at each end of the table, and fill them with your favorite beer.
5. To play, each player takes turns rolling the dice in their cup. The goal is to roll a 7 or an 11 without rolling a 1, 2, 3, or 12. If you roll any of those numbers, you automatically lose that turn. The first player to reach 21 points wins the game!
Tools and Materials
In order to make your very own beer die table with led lights, you will need the following tools and materials:
– Led lights
– Nuts and bolts
– Wire strippers
– Drill bits
– Table saw blade
– Chalk line
Step One: Cut the Table Top
Use a circular saw to cut the table top. The table top should be a 2′ by 4′ rectangle. Make sure to cut the rectangle in the middle of the board so that you have two equal halves.
Next, use a jigsaw to cut a hole in the center of one half of the table top. The hole should be big enough to fit the LED light fixture snugly.
Step Two: Attach the Legs
Use screws to attach four legs to the table top. Make sure that the legs are evenly spaced out and that they are all at the same height.
Step Three: Attach the LED Light Fixture
Attach the LED light fixture to the center of thetable top, usingthe hole that you cut earlier. Make sure thatthe light is securely attached and that it is pointing downwards towardsthe surface ofthe table.
Step Four: Hang Up Beer Dies
Hang up beer dies aroundthe edge ofthe table top, usingstring or fishing line. Make sure thatthe beer dies are evenly spaced out and that they do not block anyof the light fromthe LED fixture.
Step Two: Attach the Legs
Use a power drill to attach four 2-inch by 4-inch wood boards to the bottom of the table top. Make sure that the boards are evenly spaced so that the table will be stable. Attach the legs by screwing them into the bottom of the table top. You may want to use L-brackets to make sure that the legs are securely attached.
Step Three: Install the LED Lights
Now that you have the holes drilled and the wire run, it is time to install the LED lights. You will need:
-LED lights (we used 12 volt, 30mA cool white LEDs)
-Resistors (we used 470 ohm 1/4 watt resistors)
-Soldering iron and solder
Cut the leads on the LEDs to about 1/2 inch. Strip about 3/8 inch of insulation from the end of each lead. Solder a resistor onto each lead, making sure that the resistor is going to the long lead (the positive lead).
Now, insert the LEDs into the holes in the top of the table, making sure that the long lead (the positive lead) is going into the hole for the positive wire. Solder each LED in place.
Step Four: Add the Beer Dies
Adding the beer dies is a simple process. Just make sure to space them evenly around the board. You can use different colors of LED lights to make your table more festive.
Step Five: Finish Up
The last step is to finish up your beer die table with led lights. You will need to purchase some clear epoxy resin and mix it according to the instructions on the package. Once it is mixed, you will need to pour it over the top of the led lights. Make sure that you pour it evenly and do not leave any air bubbles. Allow the resin to dry for 24 hours before using the table.
This is a great project for any beer lover. It’s a simple way to show off your love of beer, and it’s also a great conversation piece. Beer die tables are easy to make, and they’re relatively inexpensive. You can find all of the materials you need at your local hardware store.
Building a beer die table is a fun and easy project that anyone can do. With a little bit of time and effort, you can have a beautiful and functional piece of furniture that will last for years.
