My sister just got a new job after 19 years as a CPS worker, and wanted something for her new desk. Since her birthday is coming up and I had some scrap laying around, it was a perfect time to design something. I used wooden blocks that came packaged together from Hobby Lobby, PG Purple Acrylic, and Gold Marble Acrylic from Inventables.
Sanded the blocks slightly and applied a finish and called it a day. I bonded the acrylics together with Weldon 3 then used E300 epoxy to join the acrylic to the wood. Since I had the trough cut out for the nameplate on the acrylic the weldon worked perfectly without leaching out and discoloring.
The purple and gold are a nod to JMU and not the school she is working at since she floats between 4.
