How very cool is that!!!
Very nice! very clean joints!
A very cool idea! Now if only it had a sensor to detect mood when someone approached the desk,
Their name up in lights, what more could they want? Very fun, and we all need more fun in life.
Impressive. This may get me to join the epoxy band-wagon that is currently taking the woodworking community by storm.
What a clever use of light and the materials.
Cool epoxy fill! Who needs acrylic anyway?
Love it! REALLY great design!
I’ve been planning on doing
exactly very similar to this! I was even using the same dang font! Only difference in my design is I’m not going with wedge desktop nameplate. Mine’s designed to be mounted on a wall.
I was just going to use acrylic! But the epoxy looks great! How’s that work? I mean, how do you get the epoxy to fill? I mean, I guess you had some backing that you removed. But how does the epoxy not stick to the backing?!
Thank you! And I’m glad you asked! All I used was painters tape as the backing, and since the epoxy bonds to the adhesive side of the tape it pulls right off. I also used a cheap disposable dropper to fill it to avoid epoxy overflowing. I taped the surface of the material before lasering (like a PG piece of material) and left the tape on for the pour and just pealed it off once the epoxy starts to set. Overall it was pretty simple.
I haven’t made it to any big pours yet but it is definitely fun to play with! Look up petri art with epoxy and alcohol inks it’s pretty insane and a really easy technique.
Really neat. Thanks for the info!
If you know anyone using a nebulizer (asthma, other breathing issue or doctors office) the medicine container is exactly the sort of thing you are talking about and if any are used a great number of empties are created. The plastic is resistant to anything, has a tiny tip, and the medicine very volatile so is quickly dry of residue.
How do you fill those? I’m pretty sure I have a bunch of most likely expired albuterol in the cabinet from when my daughter had pneumonia last year.
Like any eyedropper just squeeze and let go. I was given tons of them and only slowly working my way through, Sealed away like that I would doubt they might ever go bad, and have not noticed a difference between new and two years old.
