Jon Ackerman from The MET Church in Houston, TX brings us this large Victory logo in the midst of curtains. (Originally posted Jun 2013)
They sent a design to their friends at Display Ideas in Spring, TX. The company cut the letters out on their wood CNC router in two sizes: 6’ tall and 4’. The larger letters would be hung at the TheMET’s Jones Rd. campus and the smaller letters would be floor mounted at their 2nd campus on Fry Rd. They wanted continuity between their campuses.
It took 6 volunteers around 20 hours to paint, drill, screw, staple, fit and wire all 14 letters required to spell out “ V I C T O R Y” twice.
Here is the list of materials they used:
15x sheets of 4’x8’x 1/2” MDF
150x Leviton 167 Medium Base, Two piece, keyless incandescent lamp holder
25x 6”x10’ Rolls of steel flashing
1x 250’ roll of SPT-2 Lamp wire
150x Sylvania 25w Medium base clear vanity light
1x gallon of Valspar primer/paint in matte light steel gray
6x dimmer channels
2x 1 3/8” Forstn bits to drill holes
1x Hitachi Crown air stapler
14x Edison male plugs
7x Edison female plugs
Loads of hot glue
10x Solenoid Kabuki drops from Sew What, Inc.
10x Pizzas, 50 bottles of water and enough sugary drinks to energize a small army of middle schoolers
