Made this for a special guy’s 5th birthday. He loves star wars. This is the Rebel Alliance (“good guy”) logo. I routed a recess in the back for a battery pack that is attached to blue LED lights. They go around the perimeter of the back, making it glow when it’s switched on.

Glued on a template and cut it out on the bandsaw.

Lot of scrap wood – white oak, peurpleheart, mahogany, cherry, jatoba, padauk

Big thanks to Peter Brown for his inspiration!

The highest form of praise I can think of to give you is to proudly copy this design.

That is great. I just went to the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim last weekend.
I had fun going to the autograph areas and meeting the cast and crew members.
Something like this would look great hanging on the walls with the photos.
