Stargate

It started with a picture frame.

I received this picture frame as a white elephant gift at a Christmas party a few years back. I liked the movie, never really got into the tv show, but wasn't fanboy enough to put a photo in this and place it on a shelf.  The idea that it could be useful kept it from Value Village, or another white elephant exchange.

A cast was made and put together two gates. The hard part was to make a tube of light to connect the gates. After several failed attempts I finally made a hollow resin tube, connected it to the gates, stuffed it with lights, plugged it in, and years of working on my Stargate came to an end.
