Mike TenHaken from Word Of Grace Community Church in Sheboygan Falls, WI brings us this really cool lobby display item. And while it isn’t technically a stage design, it definitely belongs here.
They made this sign using white Coropalast and 1-inch pieces of poplar wood. They drew each letter first on the Coroplast to the proper dimensions and proportions. Then they framed the Coroplast letter with strips of poplar – which included a saw cut in it to slide the Coroplast into. They did each letter this way as well as a back half that created the 3-d look.
Mike then cut two 2×4’s and attached them to the back and created an “L” shape to fit in the corner. Each letter resembled an open box from the back where a 4w LED lightbulb was attached to the 2×4.
Each lightbulb was screwed into a simple ceiling bulb fixture and wired together. The lightbulbs were operated with a remote control which could create simple light patterns or basic colors.
The whole thing cost about $300.
