I made this frame for a friend in honor of her fallen husband. It is made kind of simple because I didn’t want to distract from the glass laser engraving. The engraving is not mine, just the frame, I wish I could take credit for it! My idea was to accentuate the glass work. I thought about it for awhile and came up with the idea of incorporating some LED lights in the frame to “light it up”. It took some thought as to how to run the wires. I used my router to accomplish the task, then used some strips of oak to cover it up. I put a switch in the bottom of the frame for easy access, and I think it looks better. I made this entirely of oak, even the buttons on the side, with exception of the rose wood inlay on the face. Over all I got a very warm reception from our friend, she just loved it. I hope that I have inspired some of you with a new idea for the use of LED’s. Thanks for lookin!
