My First design and build

I just completed my first design and build. Made a backlit shadow box address plaque for our home. It was made with Cedar and all cuts were with a 1/8" endmill using the stock speed and feed. V-Carve desktop and G-Sender were the programs of choice.


It looks good, I really like it.

Is the white part another material? hdpe

That is awesome, great job sir!

@Sweethand03 That looks great, Dan. I may steal your idea. What are you using for lighting?

Its just white plexiglas.


I just used a spare LED light fixture I had lying around. Who knew hoarding was beneficial :slight_smile:


That looks great! I am inspired. :slightly_smiling_face:

@Sweethand03 Excellent project! Can not show my bride this or she will want one too.

Thanks Jake. Yes, I’m a newbie, slowly testing the waters. Thanks so much for the welcome!
