Epoxy resin river tables can be stunning works of art. Adding NeoPixels and a Circuit Playground give this table an extra special dimension — its soft pulsing glow fills a room with beauty and makes every meal into a masterpiece.
This is a DIY build tutorial for making a resin river table that’s lit from underneath by LED rainbow lights. Do some woodworking with live edge walnut and epoxy resin, and learn techniques for soldering together the NeoPixels and electronics to make it glow.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
