Light Grid: Making the Grid

The first step on my new project was to cut up the original string of Christmas lights, rip off the bulb covers and mounting tabs, mount them in a piece of plywood drilled with a grid of holes, and wire everything back up. This is what I worked on for a few hours each weekend in February. After a few mishaps and bad connections, I managed to hook it all back up to the original controller (that came with them) and a new, beefier power supply (that could drive both of the 25-light strings I had spliced together).
