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.
Thanks for getting back to me 🙂 I might try a 3d printed version of these. Thanks for the inspiration.
Cool idea! It would be great to see some pictures then!!!
Hello! Congratulations! One question: are the individual spotlight cables Ikea long enough to cover the 4 field angles? Thank you!
Thanks! Yes they are! I bought them about six years ago and the cables were long enough!
Thank you! I will follow your blog! 😉
