I was wondering if anybody knows how to do halo lit letters? I saw a Tige on here a while back that was done this way, but couldn't find it in the search.
I was thinking about making the letters out of metal, then milling the releif in the back for the LEDs. The problem with this is you will see the mounting bolts/screws. So then I was thinking about letters make out of acrylic. Not the translucent stuff but the opaque. But I still have the problem of the bolt/screws showing.
What I'm trying to do here is, make it look like the letters are just floating so you can't see any mounting hardware. Then back light them so they glow.
Also this is not for my boat...it for another project that I'm working on. The letters will be mounted to a steel tube. So the bolts will have to go through the letters into the steel...
