DIY Subbuteo floodlights

These DIY floodlights for my Subbuteo table provide a great atmosphere at the attic when I play a match. You’ll just need a set of four LED spots and some pieces of wood to reconstruct them.

Well, the picture above needs some explanations: I used two strong neodymium magnets for each floodlight to create a flexible holder. I screwed one magnet (diameter 1 cm) on the pitch and one into the floodlight pylon. You may put the floodlight upright or lay it down easily, if necessary.

    These look great. Quick question. Can you post some details about the LEDs?

      Hello Peter, thanks! The LEDs are no magic, I just used a Dioder spots set from IKEA: http://www.flickingforever.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/img_0673.jpg
      The come with all cables you need. I glued the spots in and led their cable through the floodlight post. Works perfect.
