ID:	86891Just finished a 5 1/2 hour carve of a lithophane for a Christmas Present for a dear friend that unexpectedly lost her mother about a year ago.
    It measures 14" wide by 22" long. It has a 5" x 7" picture of both her parents at the top surrounded by mayhaw, followed by an 12" x 7" picture of her with her brothers, sister and mother.
    Then at the bottom is a 14" x 7" picture of her and her husband, their children, spouses, and grandchild. It came out
    wonderfully. Now today, The shadow box is 1" deep frame with a mirror attached on the
    back panel surrounded by the led lights. The lithopane is inserted a 1/4" into the frame and the half rope glued to the top edge.
    Found this led light strip at Home Depot.

    Sounds like you've put a lot of thought and work into it. I've done one almost that size and remember how I worried because it was a 13 hour run as best I can remember. Can't wait to see the finished item
