Anyone have any schematics of how I might go about doing this.......

Hi,

this should do the trick- see the diagram attached. The diodes are 1N4001, and the .1uf capacitors need to be rated for at least 25V or so.

The 4 diodes together like that is called a "Bridge rectifier". You can buy bridge rectifiers in a nice package with 4 pins making it easy to solder to your board.
