Are those LEDs mounted directly on wood? If so, it can't get any more wrong than that. LEDs need to be mounted to some sort of heatsink to dissipate the heat produced at the base of the LED which would otherwise kill the LED. No clue if that's the cause of the explosion, but I've never seen LEDs mounted to wood like that.
