I realize that the reader's point of view, it might look like not much has actually hppened on this piece since I finished the glass part oh-so-many moons ago. From my perspective, it went from being a delicate panel on its own in the world, without a frame or anything, to being a completed box with power supply, switch, built in lights, and a back cover. It was pretty cool the first way, but this way is actual awesomesauce.
There actually another 4 or 5 panels ready to be framed and lit, but I need to find or make frames for them. The rest of it should go pretty fast.
... bwahahahah, I said "should". Nevermind, you've met me. You understand.
The cards shown here are going down to The Octopus & The Fox later today, for $5 each. That really only helps you if you are in Albuquerque. If you need a card somewhere else, I can get that to you in the mail for the same $5 price.
What you are looking at is two sheets of thin wood, cut and shaped in excessive detail. Each of those spaces will be filled with a specially cut piece of glass, and the end result should be something like a very fancy room screen. Uhm, on the scale of rabbits, maybe. (It's only 12" tall.)
Fortunately, this is a prototype of something I plan to do in fancy hard woods later ... because unfortunately, I managed to break a piece off it in my efforts to get a decent picture. It's hard to be this cool, but I do offer lessons...
I was hoping to finish this over the weekend, but instead, I shaved skin off my pinky, which bled copiously, reminding me that I'm not supposed to do anything that ruins my left hand between Sunday and Tuesday, which is bowling night. Maybe by next weekend, if I am not disastrously distracted by something else.
