Hey THANKS !!!! Urban.... dwg worked great.... now I have another idea for you..

I have done this for other similar projects..... find and make an LED base that this
trophy could sit on and the LED shine up through the bottom.. and the whole thing
will light up beautifully... I bought a few bases (3 inches wide, 12 inches wide and
one inch tall... with about 8 LED (color cha
nging with a battery pack inside).. and
cut alderwood to enclose this cheap plastic base (made in China) and I bought these
little signs (had Merry Christmas or Feliz Navidad in clear plastic on them - broke that
junk off) on a closeout buy from BigLots.... after Christmas one time... I think this
A
rt Deco project would really light awesome... especially when raster engraved from the back as your plans indicate.. both layers would light up... thanks again..

Hay,

I used draft sight.

I'll upload it in another format

Instructions

I designed and cut this trophy for our European cup fantasy football league.Its made from 3mm acrylic
As you can see it was won by the Nashville Hotspurs.(well done)

It consists of 2 back pieces,the larger has etching while the front has the text,
I did my text on the back for the front piece mirrored.

And 3 for the base.
I had to do a small amount of filing to get the two vertical pieces to slot in perfectly.No glue was needed and its rock solid.
