    Lots and lots of work for a very moderate and unimpressive effect.

    Could have used a bandsaw to create those slots a lot easier and less time consuming.

    We did a similar project but used pvc (prototype model) then steel pipes to create horizontal slots and then slid a clear acrylic tubing behind it. The clear acrylic tubing was sealed and filled with water through which air bubble were generated with a fish tank aerator (from the bottom) and the whole 4 foot, 3″ tube was lit from underneath and from above.

    I found the the lamps to be discrete, harmonious, and very soothing.. .and the fact that it took a lot of work to fabricate one even more reason to reward the artist with a fair payment. Sometimes it’s more about form than function… (but dont tell Kip Kay I said that)
