Using a drill with a 22mm bit make a hole at each corner. This is to let you slide the blade of your jigsaw through and cut off the top of the LACK coffee table.
Then, remove the cut piece and the honeycomb structure beneath.
Smoothen the cut edges with sandpaper.
Next is to measure the size of the cut out. You’ll need to make a wood frame to fit this cut out. At a corner of the wood frame, drill a hole for the LED strip to go through. Make a corresponding one at the bottom of the coffee table.
