I built this one about 15 years ago and the lights were halogen. LED lights like this weren't available then, or were very expensive. I thought "How hot can tiny halogen lights get?" Hot enough to warp acrylic lightsaber covers, that's how hot! So I will be replacing them with LEDs eventually. I don't use them any more other than to flip them on long enough to take a picture. I used the maple stain I'd used before, but they changed it and it was a LOT more orange so I will probably make another one eventually.

That’s the better wine rack setup I’ve seen so far. But, I want a glass case, so I can have lighting in it, less dust on sabers. It’ll be be basement, so I can add a small dehumidifier if need be.
