Luke Lampard from Saanich Baptist Church in Victoria B.C. brings us these Ikea table towers and the illuminated sign.
This design was for their Easter services this year and will be left up now for the remainder of the summer. Luke got the ideas from CSDI, but more specifically KW Christian Fellowship’s stage design called Table Boxes. For Easter, they wanted to have lots of color and light, so when he saw these table boxes he thought that it would be awesome to try to incorporate LED lights so they could change the colors. They used 22 IKEA end tables purchased online and delivered for less than $400. The LED strip lighting was purchased by an electrician at their church through a company in China. They purchased 10 metres of lights for approximately $80.
For the HOPE letters, Luke purchased 2 3/4 inch MDF Sheets and had the letters cut out by a CNC machine. The most challenging part of the job was dressing the tables with fabric. But once they got a system down it went pretty smoothly. There was a lot of electrical work that went on behind the scenes, but for the most part it was fairly straight forward. The total cost was under $1000 after light bulbs, sockets, fabric, and staples (a lot of staples) were purchased.
