Powered Cross

Sherri McKee from Kirkwood Road Christian Church in Kirkwood, MO brings us this acrylic, LED-tape-lined cross.

For a series called “The Power of the Cross”, they repurposed a drum cage into a large, etched cross.

After replacing their drum set with electronic drums, they had an unused drum cage. Sherri loves to repurpose materials for their stage design to offset costs. She bought a Drummel 4000 and learned to etch acrylic. After some buffing to remove random drum stick marks in 3 of the acrylic panels, she etched a crown of thorns in the top section(cut at about 1/3), the Hebrew name Yeshua across the middle panel and Jesus vertically in the bottom panel. She drilled holes to join the three pieces together with s-hooks. Then they surrounded the entire cross with an LED ribbon secured with a clear, self-adhesive, corner guard. After suspending the cross from the ceiling, they surrounded it with plants to hide the chord
