1st Project: Hallway Notice Board with Integrated Smart Mirror
For a while I’ve wanted to make my own mirror and decided to integrate it into a hallway notice board next to the front door.
One of my aims was to try and keep the frame quite low profile, I re-purposed my old Sony Vaio laptop LCD. Set about designing and making the frame.
I decided to make the frame out of Oak.
The software side of things was nice and simple, good to learn some programming along the way to personalise. Just running a few modules at the moment. Will add some more on a timed schedule.
I like the MMM-Todoist Module, I use that to send my mirror messages from wherever I am as reminders.
Here is the finished Mirror
On the left the is the mirror. I made this myself with glass and mirror vinyl. on the right is a matt grey vinyl on glass with a metal sheet behind for use with the wooden magnets I made to match the frame. I can use liquid chalk markers for notes on the glass.
Overusing the masking tape a little.
Next job is to hang it on the wall and hide the wires powering the mirror.
Beautiful frame, well done.
Yes, nicely done. :thumbsup_tone1:
Very nicely done!! :)
Wow. Excellent woodworking skills there. Good idea in both concept & execution.
Looking great! Nice work!
Thank you. :)
I like the idea that it can be finished but you can always update or tweak the software/appearance stuff remotely.
Now Wall Mounted. Still a few module mods to make.
I like the whole idea, design and implementation.
I like that module at the bottom left, especially. :thumbsup:
Really nice work!
Love it! My wife wants the same lol
Could you please give us a link (or a name) where we could find the connectors to make an old laptop’s screen working please?
