I was approached by some friends in our church asking if I would make something nice for a very special lady. It needed to be different and unique as she has a lot of very nice things in her home. I knew she loved Thomas Kincade and discovered he also makes his paintings in sun catchers.
I used curly cherry, which due to the poor pictures is hard to see, and framed the stain glass in walnut. I then used a pre-wired LED set up to act as a light source. A 9 volt battery will last a about 15 days if left on steady.
I then found someone local to do the engraving. I was reasonably pleased with the outcome.
In retrospect I should have glued a shinny backing on to the back to increase the strength of the lights and I should have taken better pictures. :)
This was the last of the pre-wired LED’s I have left and for the life of me I can not remember where I found them..and despite the best efforts of the local radio shack I simply couldn’t get get my own wiring to work .
If anyone knows someone that can do custom wiring like what you see here please let me know.
To God be the glory
