Making Cool Wooden LED Christmas Stockings!

My daughter hung our Christmas stockings on the fireplace mantle and decorated them with some Christmas lights.  This inspired me to try to make some wooden stockings that light up.  In this video, I make a set of five cool LED stockings with the Inventables X-Carve CNC Machine.  Inventables sent me their latest CNC upgrades, so we'll take a quick look what's new for the X-Carve CNC as well.

I used the Inventables EASEL PRO software to design this project.  The stocking is basically a box and the front and back pieces are cut from 1/8" Baltic Birch plywood.  The side pieces are cut from 2x6 material, then it's glued together to make the box.  Click here to open my EASEL project for detailed instructions and to access my drawings.

I found a Set of 5 Battery-Powered LED Puck Lights that fit perfectly inside the stockings.  They included batteries and a remote control that controls all five puck lights at once.  I simply stuck one light inside each stocking using the included double-sided tape.

These were really fun to make and they look really cool.  I love the flashing and fading modes on the remote that make the lights change colors.  I hope this gives you some ideas to make some wooden stockings of your own.  Thanks for checking out this project!  Steve...
