How it works
The software that you program the lights to go on, off, flicker, fade down, fade up with looks like a spreadsheet. The rows on the left side are your electrical channels or circuits. The columns are your timing blocks to turn the lights on and off.

Arch assembly pictures
Had to first build a turner to rotate the pipe so I could wrap the lights on the pvc pipe. It helps to have some old copier parts around and an old auto window motor also.
Before I could start wraping the pipe I ran all of my power cords along the pipe and wrapped the lights over the top of them.
This is the first section of 100 lights to go on. I wrapped 7 sections of 100 lights to get the effect I wanted. This made a 7 channel arch.
Here are the finished arches with the power pigtails. The next step is to hammer stakes in the ground at about 7 feet apart and then slide each end of the pvc over the stakes in the ground

2013 Misc. and Led Pictures
Casses of icicle lights arived in July.
The work started to get these all on the hanging pipe. On the peak pipes, I had to make smaller sets of led strings to get the full lenght I needed.
Had 2 new wreaths made for the north and south attic windows. Here I am stringing on the new led rope light off of 150 foot spool.
Just a little closer look at the led's going on the wreath.
