DIY SURROUND LIGHT BOARD
Hi there i recently made my own led Light surround and i wanted to share some pictures. The surround is made of hardboard box material. I bought a ledstrip from local shop and put i in the surround. Did a little paintjob. Ready to go.

Very neat idea, trying to figure out from the photo's how the surround was constructed , was it cut out from a block of this material..? do you have it fixed to wall or on a portable stand.? I think it would be ideal for a portable stand , no need to mount lights anywhere as you have your own on the board.

Hardboard like they use on the back of a closet. It's called Unalit. 
For putting it together i used wood glue. 

Day 1  i put my dartboard on the floor with the surround on it. Made a strip of 150mm wide and 2,5m long. I put some glue on the beginning or end about 200mm long. Then made it around the surround so it fits not to firmly. Put some plastic wrap around it so it stays together. Let i rest for a day. 
Day 2  make a ring. You can use a knife or something to cut it. Or maybe electric saw. I used a machine at my work.  Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images. put the ring on the floor. Take the cilinder you made yesterday put glue al on top. Flip it around and put it on the ring. Press a little bit and let it rest for a day. 
Day 3 spray it all in the color you want. Maybe use white on the inside or something light. I used wat i had. And thats black. Take the ledstrip and put it in the ring where the surround meets. Drill a hole in the surround you made for cable entry. Done.!
