Super strings

What better way to spend a rainy day then making super strings.  A super string is actually 4 light strings (red, green, blue and white) tied together with wire ties (wanna guess how many wire ties we use every year?).

Super strings (as opposed to Mega strings) are all LED bulbs.  I chose not to use 4 colors early on because in my experience blue lights didn’t last long.  LED’s on the other hand not only don’t have a fading problem, their colors are actually quite intense. 

The Mega tree this year is made up of nearly 5000 LEDs and is controlled by 32 light-o-rama channels.

This is a shot of a super string mid-way in the construction process.
