I purchased one of the “Lmeison 3D Lights Colorful Touch LED Visual Lights 7 LED Colors Change Décor Atmosphere Lamps” from Amazon that other Glowforgers have recommended. I wanted something less plastic for the base so I removed the LED’s circuit board and used some solid pieces of walnut I had around the shop.
I spent more than an hour trying to router, drill and chisel an appropriate cavity for the LED’s circuit board and ended up with a mess, I got the same results when I tried to cut the slot in the top to accept the acrylic.
Switching to the Glowforge thinking mode I traced the odd shape of the circuit board onto a piece of paper and used the Glowforges’s trace function to make two perfect cutouts from 1/8 inch walnut.
I then used Inkscape to cut out the slot for the acrylic in the top. After inserting circuit board I glued the top three layers to a 3/8" base.
