I’ll bet this is a real headturner when it is lit up.
It is fantastic just sitting.
Thanks for sharing.

This is really sharp and interesting too.

What made it a little easier was that I designed ever one of the 130+ pieces in google sketchup. That way i knew exactly what size and angle to make every piece.

I think we need some pictures with the backlighted stained glass. First woodworking project? That is hard to believe. Great project.

This is amazing- great workmanship and use of sketchup. I echo the desire to see it backlit! How did you achieve the tapering lead-lines in the stained glass? Fantastic!

As it turned out the stained glass and the panels were the same thickness around the edges so it just slipped right in. The tolerances are all the same on the styles and the rails because last minute i changed the panels design. (so much for planning every cut!) I’ll take some pictures of it lit up today…or better yet some video since the lights are dimmable and remote control.
