I made my first marquee letter for a friend (Sergiu requested one for his significant other, Madalina). It came out really well although it was my first time working with metal (aluminium ribbon). It was more difficult to make than I though (it usually is) because I don’t have a proper shop to work with metal, so bending it was a bit of a nightmare. The lights are standard microwave oven lights, which I chose both because I liked the shape and because they are incandescent, so they give off a yellow/orange light. Also, I wanted light bulbs that run on 220V so I don’t need a power brick to convert the current.

The “M” is laser-cut from MDF by FabLab and the metal was bought from the UK, since I wasn’t able to find small pieces for sale in Romania.
