I made this sign a while back now but apparently forgot to post anything about it
The guy I’m renting a room from has a small woodshop on the property, and he let me re-purpose what used to be a dust-free storage room into my personal room for machines that don’t appreciate loads of dust like 3D printers and lasers. Long story short, and a lot of screws later, I had a room with enough space for my 3D printers and the GF. But it needed a name, or more correctly it needed a sign. I like naming rooms: it makes it easier to talk about where something is located. The name actually came from when we were buying OSB for the walls, and Home Depot wanted a “project name” to put the purchase under. Without much hesitation the name “Laser Lounge” was chosen.
I wanted something that I could light up if the kids are allowed to enter the room, so I knew it needed to include acrylic of some sort. After a bit of playing with designs, I settled on this:
Here’s what it looks like with some light behind it.
The letters are all PG medium frosted acrylic, and the wood is PG medium Red Oak. The laser is Tortoiseshell Acrylic from inventibles.
Remember when I said I would light it up when the kids are allowed in the room? I keep forgetting to finish this project so it just sits in the window without any control of if it is lit of not, but that’s fine by me since the kids are always allowed in if I’m in
