I wanted to try something different. So this is a first of this type of project for me.

This project stands 11 3/4” tall x 9 1/4” wide and 1 3/4” thick with spacers. The wood is Baltic Birch 1/8”. There are spacers between the front and back and in those spacers are holes for the lights. The lights are battery operated. I tried to get a picture with the lights on. Sorry not a very good picture. The finish is a light coat spray lacquer.

The pattern was created by Volker Arnold.

Thanks for looking.

Very nicely done, good job. I built one last year, told my wife it was fun but I wasn’t in a hurry to make another one. The result? So far this season I’ve made 4.

A hint on the photo with the lights: place on a dark background, reduce room lights to near dark, and take picture at a slight angle.

Fantastic job – looks great. Really like the 3D effect with the lights.
Never seen the pattern before.
