I’ve made a few of these out of cherry. I did the routing with a straight bit to give the glass and floating glass something to sit on. They are very popular in my unit.

Again. Super nice idea for the MAGs. Maybe Dan needs to steal this concept. How’d you cut the glass? Did you take it out in town or is it plexi you cut with the laser?

Plexi doesn’t look good. It’s dull and attracts every speck of dust. I took it to te frame guy my unit uses for all of our command pictures. He gets so much business from us, he did four pieces for $10.

Ten bucks you say? Was that each? That’s crazy good. Dan needs to start using that guy. I think he still does all his stuff with plexi.

No, total. He didn’t even want to charge me. I’ve brought some business his way for the MAG. He gives me stacks and stacks of his cutouts of the matting in all kinds of colors and textures. All 11×14 and 8×10. He just throws the away but I swing by and pick them up when I start running low. He’s awesome. Swift Frames. Tell Dan to do an OP there for ComCam one time and he’ll be your best friend.

Nice job. I have thought about doing the multi glass layers but haven’t yet…you have tripped my interest wire so may have to try that for the next box.

It is super easy and with the standard pane glass, it reflects the light well to keep it bright and colorful. I used some kind of model airplane wood from the craft store as the spacers. You’ll go crazy trying to make a spacer that fits exactly. But if you realize that nobody will ever look at the corners and joinery in the spacer’s points, it’ll be a lot easier.
