Handmade DU Sign with LEDs

Recommended Posts

Hey all,


So I put together a sign for Dual Universe. I made it out of Padauk, Walnut, and Oak. These are natural wood colors, so no dying. I then traced a logo onto the wood and carved it out with my router. It isn't perfect, it is the first sign I've made, but I am really happy with it. After making the inlay i drilled holes, routed out the back of the piece, and added 24 LED diodes. Once i wired them up and everything was working, I mixed up epoxy with white pigment and poured it over the letters. After the epoxy dried, i sanded smooth, added some chamfers, and finished with Shellac. 


Here are some pics of me putting it together...


I used spray adhesive to attach the paper to the wood and then used a router to carve out.



What a mess? Maybe I should have used LED strips instead of this... Well, maybe next time.



It works!!



Finished Product..

I turned the lights off..



It is really shiny :) 






Hope you all like it!!
