This is to be a build log of the first commission I’ve decided to document.┬áThis is a custom piece, requested after my name was suggested for the job. It’s a mainly polycarbonate theatrical staff, with the crown adorned with UV LEDs. It’s rechargeable, and has a small microcontroller to handle battery management and sequencing of the LEDs.

Read on for more photos of the construction, and a few bits of technical info that make the project what it is.
