this 12 inch mirror reflects lots of light from an addressable LED strip. I sized it to match the exact length of 1m 32 LED strip. I also cut spacers to make the mirrored surface and the front surface exactly parellel. this makes for a very nice straight infinite tunnel effect.
cut one face piece from 1/8 inch mirrored acrylic. leave the protective film in place or be very careful
cut one face piece from 1/8 inch clear acrylic. leave the protective film in place or be very careful.
cut eight spacer side pieces from 1/16 inch acrylic. these are the exact width of the LED strip i choose.
I then found a good bending point on the strip and started sticking the spacer pieces to the strip.
cut nine of the slightly large edge pieces from 1/16 inch acrylic. glue these to the sides spacer pieces. use the extra to help with alignment.
bend the LED strip and two layers of acrylic around the clear front surface to test fit and sizing. remove protective film. apply glue and plenty of pressure.
i taped the back mirror panel in place so it could be opened for cleaning and maintenance.
i added a wire all around the edge for hanging.
