Just finished it today and am now building the light box for it. The panel is about 27x35 and the photo of course is no match to real glass.

  • Looks great

    Doug I am really into Eagles and of course the good old USA. I have Eagles all over my office and my training center. That would look great in a window.

    Nice use of the \"grains\" in the pieces...

    Is that your own design? My wife's dad did that type of work, before he passed away. Few people realize the time that gets put into each panel. It upset me greatly to see all of the unfinished projects in their basement, knowing that many were being made special for family and friends.

    The design was done by

    two good friends who have a shop in CA. I am trying to get it displayed at the local airport with a Welcome Home sign for the returning armed forces men and women.

    TRUE ARTISTRY

    Doug,
    Amazing work!!! I took a stained glass course a few years back and I can appreciate the time and effort that went into that piece of art. The blending of the glass grain is superb. It is obvious that you put your heart and soul into this one. Is it copper foil or lead came? Either way you deserve a huge ATTABOY!!

    Thanks. This one was a for fun project.

    Today I found out I am going to the Bangor Airport Tuesday to see the folks that run the place. We are going to find a spot to place the Eagle so the armed forces staff coming home will see it and the Welcome Home sign. I am building a light box to back light the panel.
    It is a copper foil panel with a 1/2 inch zinc frame that will set into the light box, lit by 6- 3 foot tubes thru a 3/16ths acrylic difuser. I hope the troops will appreciate it.
