    Here are a few pics of my current project. It's a ww2 airplane loop antenna converted to look like a bomb. It's almost done. Let's see um finished or not.image_1.jpegimage.jpeg

    Here's mine. First in a bunch of new signs, spaced off the wall with color changing LEDs behind. Then a stoplight and crosswalk on a pvc pole I made (counts as "art")? Then two closeout packs of DK wall clings from Amazon.

    Nothing crazy as of yet but the family did some Mario puzzles and we glued them on a stern box and hung on wall. .also found a place online selling cool old tin arcade and other signs. Made a pin key rack out of one. .pushed me over the edge to make one when i came home to a broke off key in twd...boo 1449797661550.jpg

    Sed, that's a great idea spacing the signs from the wall with lights behind them. Looks awesome!

    Have to put this back up as I expanded my room from 3 to 4 machines and it lost its spot. Pulled this off an EM game that was sitting on the third floor of an OP. Roof was leaking and the games had been sitting for 30+ years, but this looked cool and unlike the devil hadn't fallen apart. Mounted it, wired it up with new sockets.

    I haven't really done anything with this yet, but I made a mockup of some vinyl to put around a featured machine at the store where my friends and I have some games and have league. I might do something similar at home one day.

    Thanks, it was a pain to get it how I wanted it but it did come out nice. Between the powder coating and making the back plate so I could mount it to the wall it was a chore.

    Those light boxes are supper cool. I've been thinking about doing something like that for a while now just haven't committed to it yet. Awesome way to display art.

    Thanks, wanting to build some more for other translites, but are costing me over a $100 each. I got a TWD translite but it is bigger than Williams/Bally, so need to build one special for it.

    Thanks! It was a lot of work making the spacers and then getting them hung. You can see in the pic that I used 1x2's and spaced them either 1,2 or 3 boards deep.

    Cool! I have signs all over, but never thought of the 3-d look like that. Now that I see you actually set up scaffolding.....I surrender!

    #17 3 years ago

    So far, we've just done a sign for the recroom wall here, providing the rules for our amusement space. Based loosely on the signs that showed up in the promotional Flynn's Arcade they had for run-up promotion for Tron Legacy. Note that, since everything will always be free play, we had to mention quarters alongside the tokens and slugs.

    That is a Mario puzzle the family put together. ..550 piece so not difficult but it looks cool as wall art. Used something my girl called modge podge i think to glue it together.

    I think me and the family will have to do one ourselves.

    A while ago I had a couple perler bead projects that are fairly large. Easily 10000 hand placed beads for each picture. Each plastic square board under bowser holds about 900 beads.

    Are those the beads you heat up so they melt together?

    #23 3 years ago

    Yes. They are the plastic beads that you melt. If you squish them enough while melting them, they look square and pixelated. I quickly learned that the melting part is a real challenge with a small iron and a large project. As the beads cool they curl up out of the square racks. I had to hold everything down until they were all attached. Almost effect up bowser.
