Hello ladies and gentlemen.
I wonder can anyone throw me some ideas for a frame to hold a sign and strips of LED.

The image is laser cut on .8mm stainless steel.
I need an idea for a light, simply constructed frame to hold the strip if LEDS to surround the sign.

I've been thinking of 10mm thick alluminium strips but that would involve alot of drilling and tapping to construct. Not to mention weight.
I also thought of polypropylene and glue.
Or strips of wood tacked together.

I really don't know so hoping ye might have ideas.
Excuse the fast sketch.

My local hardware shops have aluminium profiles that you could use. They have pieces that you can stick into the ends to make corners; they actually look okay.
You could look at frames for pictures; they aren't that expensive and save a lot of time.

I'd recommend a sheet of acrylic behind the front panel to dispense light.

Thank you very much for your reply.
That's a great idea. I will look into it.

I actually made some of these. I used some trim boards from lowes that had a channel pre cut in it. Just cut and nail together.

Far as leds go. Diy yourself somehow to save cash or use smd led strip.

Have thousands in leds...

Wasted money.

ALPENA (MAX) LED STRIP IS ALWAYS THE ONLY ANSWER.

>pic very related.
