Hello. once again another project to work on among the other three i have going right now.

after seeing Jason's fiberglass bio from Termokk and him shining a light through it, i immediately decided i needed one and needed to turn it into a wall light.

so here we go!

just finished the wood plaque. next step will be staining it then fixing the hardware to it that will hold the bio and light.

last pic has the light on behind it.

cheers!

Fanfreakingtastic! Before I painted mine, I kept it right in front of the lamp that I took the pics with. I wanted to leave it there, but alas I would need 5 more since I have 6 of those lamps. Looks Great Daman - gonna keep my eye on this one

thanks guys.

Lem- i have a stain that is almost black. i have to try it out on a piece and see if i like it. was thinking of painting the groove with a red.

anybody have any other ideas for a stain? def want to stain it. not paint.

every bio is a work of art, that takes it to a new level

thanks for all the kudos everyone. i got the idea from Jason so it's not totally all my doing. plus luckily Termokk casts in FG resin.

go right ahead Clay! i would love to see how you mount yours. give Corey (termokk) a pm for a really nice and strong Fiberglass P1

Option 2 so far. Need to see option 3 straight on tho as I like the depth it gives.. Might think about doing something with the bottom end of the blades instead of just the square look. Just my opinion

Option three, but as Clay commented, curve the the top of the back down into the wood, so it's not square. Perhaps, continue the curve from the front of the blade to the back. Do a quick mock-up with cardboard to check it. Would it look stupid to have the rear of the blades tucked under the chin and actually have the blades extend past the bottom of the plaque (Still standing vertically, as in #3)? Damn shame the plaque isn't large enough to make it look skull & bones...
