Oh man, oh man! I finally made one of these bad boys! Been wanting to since even before the laser arrived, so I’m glad I was able to.
Anyway, I can’t remember who it was who mentioned doing a gradient, but I think it really helped. Should have got a smidge darker at the beginning, but it’s not too noticeable. I added a little Proofgrade Walnut Plywood spacer so the light wasn’t showing at the base of the acrylic, and actually have some ideas of making the spacer as big as the top of the LED base with some designs/words either cut into it or engraved. Figured I’d start small with the first one
The sign itself is 6.5 inches tall and wide, but I’ll probably be making the next ones a bit smaller to be able to maximize how many I can make out of one sheet of the Proofgrade Acrylic. I got one of the fancy bases with a remote to be able to change the colors, definitely worth it to me!
