This was engraved (both X & Y) and cut from glass green acrylic. The lower part of the swish washes out- too close to the leds maybe? The base is an in-process kinda thing- this one has two rows of leds, which is nice and bright but needs a diffuser I think. Does anyone know of a ready made led base that is decent (and not overly expensive)? Thanks Gene

i always sand the bottom edge where it meets the LEDS. acts as a great diffuser

I have seen those- but it looks like they are for .5 inch acrylic... kinda overkill? Thanks Gene
