Piano Pedal Light Switch and Custom Light Boxes

While working for Zyl Vardos, a fellow employee gifted me this old piano pedal.  She had used the rest of the piano internal parts in various building projects and she liked my idea of making a light switch with the pedal, so she gave it to me.  


I found a push button switch at Ace hardware for 8.99, so I made a little box out of hickory to hold the switch.


The switch turns on two LED light boxes that I made out of cedar and locust.  Here are pics with and without the flash... 


The LED lights were too bright so i made a diffuser with a ring of black walnut and white paper.  There are copper pipes holding the diffuser as stand-offs.
