I came up with what I think is a pretty neat idea for creating lighting under an awning. As I'm sure all of you know, LED's are pretty directional. (really bright circle of focus where ever the light is pointed). I didn't think that would be very good for under the awning on the drive in restaurant I built so I came up with the idea of putting the LED in a drinking straw. I capped the end of the drinking straw with some Hydrocal and mounted it under the awning. The effect is like the awning has a florescent light under it with a nice even glow under neath it. Hopefully I will be able to figure out how to upload the photos to give you a better idea how it worked.
