Marquee I made for my youngest daughters movie themed wedding held this spring in a 100 year old theater. Found the letters in a local antique shop labeled “from the 1920’s”.
Design morphed from a simple picture frame to “Hey Daddy, can you make it look like a Movie Marquee and paint it and maybe make it light up?” What Daddy says no to his daughter, the Bride? LOL’s!!!
Approximately 3’ x 1.5’ x 6”. Simple painted pine box, arch and frame with an opaque white acrylic face and clear globe light border. Acrylic is backlit with a fluorescent light fixture. Box and frame assembled with pocket hole screws, has a vented back and lights are controlled separately. First use of my Kreg Pocket Hole jig for something other than shop fixtures!
