Eight years ago (yes, I do procrastinate sometimes) I headed up the building committee for the expansion of my church's chapel and education wing. We had stained glass windows that were in the front doors, but the doors were shot and we could not find replacements that would fit the glass. So, ever the generous and unthinking man that I am, I volunteered to build light boxes for the windows so they could be mounted on the wall in the lobby.
This week I decided it was time.
So, pulling some white oak I had salvaged from some used pews we purchased for the expansion (poetic, right?) I made a quick mitered frame to hold the glass, a diffuser panel, and a melamine back panel onto which I would mount a 20' rope light. The lines (if you can see them in the picture) show the path the rope will follow. I'm hoping the addition of the diffuser panel (cut from a 2x4 fluorescent ceiling lamp panel) will help disguise the individual bulbs. The rope will be mounted using the little clips that came with them attached to the panel with double sided tape. I tried crazy glue, but it would not stick.
More pictures to follow!
