This is not completely finished yet, but I was so pleased with the way it looks I wanted to post the photo. This is made from 3/8” cast acrylic and was engraved and then cut out on my laser engraver. That part is finished, but the walnut base isn’t finished yet. I need to put an edge on it and then some finish.
The name plate lights up with a strip of LED lights at the base. The LED light strip is powered from a USB port on the computer. So it comes on when you turn the computer and goes off when you turn the computer off. It also has an inline switch if you want to turn it off while the computer is on. The photo is taken with all the office lights on and the window shades open. It really lights up nice even in full light.
