Not sure what the heck to really call this thing
I had been working on a shadowbox and thinking of the best way to back-light it when Greg provided inspiration. (Thanks @greg_golin!) I’m going to make a few minor design changes, but I’m really happy with how my first version turned out.
I used the light diffusing acrylic from Inventables and the 1/4" stuff cut like butter (I’m not sure how much difference it really makes compared to the regular stuff.) The front is PF Cherry and the back draftboard. (It’s a bit heavy and will try all hardwood next time.)
(Unfortunately the camera doesn’t do the LED justice makes it look all blotchy and uneven. The color is much more consistent and vibrant in person.)
