for my input and output I chose to use a potentiometer with two led bulbs. As you turn the
potentiometer the leds fade from red to green and vice versa.
I decided to craft my vessel out of wood due to time constraints, familiarity of the material, and my new found passion for woodshop. Initially I wanted to make my vessel bottom heavy with varying widths, however, my plans changed after spending some time on the lathe. With the help of Adam Lans, I used the mill in the shop to carve out an area to rest my "egg." Afterwards I realized that I didn't remember to plan for a cover. Luckily a huge chunk of the wood I used still remained and Adam Lans again came up with a superb idea: a swivel top.
