How To Make Custom LED Lights for IKEA Display Cabinets!

If you have IKEA display cabinets or shelves, one easy way to make them more useful is to assemble and install custom LED lighting fixtures in them to light up their contents. Norm upgrades a standard Detolf glass cabinet with four banks of LED lights that are housed in discreet metal channels that both diffuse the light and aim them right at his figure collection. And while we’re soldering, let’s take a look at a new diecast Iron Man armor!
