Tell us about yourself!
Love it, and really liked the spin casting idea for the epoxy layers. Gonna have to come up with a need to try that someday.
Very slick! Nice looking table and great use of the actuator.

Ah.. nested buckets - great idea!
I like the design. Do you have to tip the entire thing over to empty the water? Seems like a removable bucket would make filling / rinsing a little easier.

Yes, I tested it before & after embedding it, and it didn't make enough difference to really matter since I'm just using the UV rating to drive the NeoPixel. You could probably do the same and adjust the reading in the code.
UltraV: a Portable UV-index Meter
Very nice project - I like how you kept it such a small case and track the cumulative intensity. I built something similar into a permanent case on our boat dock, but used a single Adafruit NeoPixel (https://www.adafruit.com/category/168) to display a color that corresponds to the current UV intensity. It would be cool to add one to the center of your "sun" on the front of the case.

Thanks. This one didn't have internal limit switches, so that's why I added them. I'm planning to build another one for a different location and plan to use a stronger actuator for it.

That's an impressive level of patience!
:-) Sure - you could use a much faster linear actuator - there are some that are 2-3 times as fast as this one. I intentionally selected a slow one so I could be sure it wasn't pinching any wires as it closes. You could also double the voltage, but that woudl probably let the smoke out after a few cycles. :-)

Make a "Marble" Table From Concrete
Thanks for the comment. I'm planning to do the same thing for the front trunk ("frunk"), which doesn't have a light. Probably my next 'ible!
In a way, it is. A portion of my electricity comes from renewable sources, including solar, so some of that is going into the battery when I charge it

Mold Making & Casting Class
Cool project. I like the idea of a capacitance sensor instead of a simple on/off. I've been tinkering with ideas to measure lake levels at a vacation home, and this approach might work. Coudl it be scaled to measure over a wider range - say 18 - 24 inches?
