DEFCON Sign No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture
Zoom Pictures

This was a DEFCON sign I made for work, sort of. As my boss gets more and more frustrated throughout the day, we raise the DEFCON level.
Made of oak, with plexi for the front. On the plexi are stickers printed from an inkjet. The signs are lighted from behind with led’s, and is controlled by a switch box with a six position rotatory switch. Defcon 1,2,3,4,5 and off. We get lots of laughs from it.

Yes it does. We all have to have our DEFCON brought down now and again, and laughing at ourselves helps. Happy Holidays to you and yours as well.

Actually, 5 is peace, and 1 is world war. To answer your question, when we get to 1, well, that’s top secret, sorry.

You must have a very cool boss to put up with that sort of thing. It is too funny though.
