Justin Edmonds and Jason Christensen from Resurrection Life Church in Grandville, MI brings us these cool homemade tube lights.
This stage was in their youth room. They built it for their youth conference called One Heart. They have a weird shape for a stage since it is in the corner. So they wanted to do something that would flatten out the stage. They had a budget of $1000 and spent $500 of it on the design and rented $500 worth of lights.
They wanted to make it more theater style so it was extremely light. The side pieces are made from 2×2 wood and Coroplast plastic. The tubes were a translucent PVC type pipe. They purchased 10 packs of LED tape along with the DMX controllers.
They also got connectors for when they needed to cut the LED tape.
The center behind the drums was the same plastic just made with 2×4 wood instead for stability.
