Here’s my “Every Story Matters” sign completed. It’s about 16” x 5”. The words are made of a back layer of medium red Proofgrade acrylic with another layer of mirrored acrylic for the word “Story” from Inventables.
I then glued the set of words to a layer of medium clear Proofgrade acrylic with the opposite corners rounded to give it some character. I also cut holes for the stand off screws.
The back layer is thick Proofgrade walnut with the same corners rounded to match and 4 circles engraved where I glued the screws into the walnut rather than cutting holes and using screws/nuts. I used Lock Tite glue and they are extremely solid.
Since this is the mission statement of my church, I engraved the church logo into the upper right area to subtly balance it out.
Finally, I cut some simple stands out of thick Proofgrade clear acrylic.
Now that I’ve done a few like this, I have a good process down, so I can make more in this style fairly quickly (I think)…
I love how this came out. It’s my favorite project to date.
