LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Lighting in Las Vegas is serious business. From the lights outside on the Las Vegas Strip, to the lights inside resorts, no one does it better.

In this week's Nevada Built, 13 Action News anchor Todd Quinones looks at a company brightening up Las Vegas lives.

At CNC LightShapes, they are making custom designs.

DESIGN & BUILD

"We design everything and build everything here," says Owner, Mike Johnsen.

Johnsen says he has been cranking out different lights since 2006. From night clubs and poker machines, to aquarium lights seen on the Las Vegas-based former TV series Tanked.

"This is really funky with not only the lights but also the etching in the background. Really kind of gives it a three dimensional look," says Todd. "Yeah, it's it's a combination of infinity mirror and also a black hole, if you will, type of image in the middle," says Michael.

Michael can put lights just about anywhere.

UNIQUE IDEAS

"And then these are lighted cabinets," says Michael. "Oh, this is great," says Todd.

"How about lights under a countertop?" Todd asked.

"Who would want this? Who is your customer would say, you know, this is what we want," says Todd. "High-end homes is where that would go traditionally. We have done a few restaurants," says Michael.

And these aren't your typical wall lights.

"It's got a little red or maybe a pink. Yeah. Easy," says Todd. "You got it," says Michael.

UNLIMITED

"Really simple. And almost like the options are unlimited," says Todd. "Oh, yeah. And in a home, you might want several different rooms with different colors of different lights or different on or off or doing whatever you want to do," says Michael.

Inside his shop near Desert Inn and the 15, the light displays often begin with fabrication, laser engraving and even sandblasting. All to get the desired look.

"And I see here, is this the finished product? I assume," says Todd. "Yes that's it," says Michael.
