This LED Infinity Display Box is a real conversation starter. If you have not seen an infinity box before make sure you watch the video above. 

You can use any scroll saw project you like as long as it fits inside the box. I included the pattern for the ship. I think it looks pretty good in the box. I found that it is best to paint the project white for the best visibility. You can try other colors. Black did not work well at all. 

The pattern is pretty basic. I did not include too many instructions for the box build. You can build the box without a table saw but the table saw makes the groove and rabbit easier to make. If you have basic woodworking skills you can make this project.

This was just a quick prototype. I will eventually go back and paint the box black. Right now the back of the box is the back of the mirror. I will cut a thin wood backing to cover the back of the mirror. This will help prevent the back of the mirror from getting scratched.

This project does cost a few dollars to build but being able to display a scroll saw cut in such a unique way made it worth the price to me.

Parts needed to build the infinity box minus the wood.

Order Your Custom 3D Name Block Pattern. $5 

Click to order your pattern
You will receive the pattern by email with a link to make payment. $5/Pattern.
You don't pay until you receive the pattern and are pleased with it.

These 3D name blocks can be cut from 1.5" X 1.5" X 7" blocks of wood. You can cut down standard 2" X 4" construction boards. Home Depot also sells 1.5" X 1.5" X 36" Poplar boards that work perfectly. You can find them in the craft wood section.

Use any two names. First name/Last name., Husband/Wife, Boyfriend/Girlfriend, etc.
Keep in mind that the pattern is 7" long. If the name is only 3 letters it will be stretched out

For example, Bob Williams will look like this. These look better than leaving large spaces. There is much less stretching when the name has four or more letters. 
There are complete instructions in the pattern book.
