Tim Sherwood from Prairie Lakes Church in Cedar Falls, Iowa brings us these cool LED chevron shapes.
Tim saw something similar from Cross Point Church in Nashville and tried to recreate it for his purposes. The set pieces were made from 3 different materials. 1/4 inch luan for the faces. They used LED tape lighting to light them. The problem with the tape was that the throw of the light wasn’t very wide, so they needed to find a way to get it up above the space and aimed down in order to light the whole 6″ space. They used two different pieces of pine trim to do so. One was a simple wedge and the other was a outside corner piece.
The chevrons were 3 different sizes 8′ 7′ and a 6′ getting them lined up and spaced correctly wasn’t as easy as they thought it would be. They ended up laying them down on the floor and took their time with the spacing screwed them into the frames stood them up and they were still off. One of the sides was lifted up about 3″ with some carpet samples. There was a 30′ rule in stage design. If you cannot see it from 30′ away the flaw isn’t that bad.
Total cost for the design came in at $1700. $700 for the material cost and $1000 for the all of the lighting materials which can be reused in other future designs.
