Do you want to make an LED tube by yourself? LED tube light is as popular as led downlight among consumers. And actually, you can make the tube by yourself easily if you do according to our instruction. Before your work, you should prepare things you will need, like 1 foot baton case or tube with end caps, dowel rod, dental floss, spray paint, light strip with included interconnect cable, toe-nail clipper, extension cord, soldering iron and solder, drill with 1/4 inch bit, hot glue gun and glue slug, liquid electrical tape, cigarette plug and universal AC to DC 12-volt converter.

Step 1
Buy a baton tube case custom cut to 1 foot and remove the end caps. Slide the tube over the dowel rod. You are advised to tie a piece of dental floss onto the dowel rod at both ends to hang the tube up from a rafter in the garage or other suitable place.

Step 2
You can use spray gun to spray paint the tube lightly with an even coating of white  paint. Turn the tube carefully by using your finger on the inside of the tube to get the even coating you required. Wait for the paint to dry naturally.

Step 3
Cut the wire of the interconnect cable in half between the plugs located at either end and strip the ends of the wire you just cut. You also should plug the cut and stripped interconnect cable plugs into the plugs at either end of the light strip.

Step 4
Solder the wires together at one end and cover the expose part wire with electrical tape. Then you should glue the wire under the end cap with hot glue gun after you coiling up the wire. Put the light strip into the tube and put on the end cap, sealing it in place with a hot glue gun. Use the drill bit to drill a hole into the end of the remaining end cap and cut a length of extension cord to the length that you want.

Step 5
Strip the end of the extension cord and strip wires inside at both ends. You also need to tie a small overhand knot into the cord above the hole and glue the knot and extra wire to the end cap. Strip wires and solder it to the end of the wires coming out of the other side of the extension cord. Hide exposed wires.
