My Name in Light

This sign was made at NYCResistor's Lazzzor class using 1/8" acrylic plastic and a 35W Epilog laser cutter. Annelies and I made the designs using Inkscape, then assembled them from the pieces.

This sign used a "Army" stencil font that I downloaded from the net. I had to make Inkscape convert the letters into shapes to get it to burn right, and even then, I had a problem where the larger letters were cut twice, making some of the narrow parts a bit weak. You can see this with the missing middle piece in the "H" in "THE". I discovered the sunlight effect after I brought it home, a very happy accident.
