The Ghost of Versailles Sconces: There were 16 sconces total on the two   walls (pictured above), each scone had three candles   with six LED diodes , three warm and three cool).  Each candle had to   be soldered to CAT 6 cable with an RJ45 connector on the end. I spent   about 20 hours total soldering these sconces.
