These are some wood and Plexiglass versions of stained glass
that I have been doing.
I used Baltic Birch, proofgrade maple, and Plexiglass for the frame work.
I used clear, frosted, and mirrored Plexiglass for the inserts.
After a lot of trial and error, I found the best way to keep the inserts
In the frame is to cut an outline of the frame in clear gloss plastic label.
Then place the frame on the label cutout. Remove the protective paper
from one side of the Plexiglass and insert it into the associated opening.
Apply a drop of super glue on the really small pieces to help keep them in place.
You can paint and use the cutouts from the frame to make an all wood
version or just paint and use the frame itself.
I have included the SVG’s.
Settings 1/8 Plexiglass
Focal Offset 3.17
Keep the protective paper or plastic on both side
of the Plexiglass when cutting.
