The software is available on GitHub, where there is also a description of how it all works.
Here are some details on the wooden case used for this project. The overall parts are shown below.
The LED matrices are held in place using particle board with cut outs for each matrix. This sits in slots behind the glass.
The front of the LED panel is painted black to minimize the potential for any light to reflect back out.
The LED panel and glass sit in slots.
A Fritzing file is included in the repo which shows the wiring connections.
Everything gets hooked together just before closing it all up.
And then it's ready to go.
