Default Another LED Sign Attempt

Here is an LED lit etching I did for a great friend of mine. I thought it turned out pretty nice. I'm betting you can't guess what he does for a living.

The piece is 8.5" x 12", 1/4" acrylic. It was etched using a 1/2", 90 degree V bit set to cut .02" deep. The entire etching took about 20 minutes to complete. Normally my bases are done in flat black but I did this one in oak with a tung oil finish. I thought it added a little more class to the piece.
