The Damaged Accordion

Matt Carroll from Gadsden Christian Fellowship in Gadsden, AL brings us this great use of wood for a Thanksgiving project.

They built three 6×10 panels out of cedar fence boards. To tie the sections together they took fence boards and made an abstract, criss-crossing design. They lit the panels with LEDs. For the projection screens they built smaller panels and lit them from behind.

For the trees, they cut a few down and put them in buckets with sand for support – placing them in front of the panels. To finish the design they used a low lying fogger to give the illusion of an early morning fog.

Total cost for the project was less than $100 – with donations and re-used materials.

    WARNING! Troll comment!

    Seriously? This is a church? A bunch of boards and some twiggy potted plants inspire people how?

      Hi CSDI readers!
      Unfortunately, internet trolls come in secular AND “christian” versions. This fellow is one of those. Let’s ignore this comment and choose not to return evil for evil. Because that’s what this is. It’s evil to take God off the throne and judge men’s hearts for yourself.
      Let’s let God be our defender. He sees our hearts.

    I LOVE this! We are doing a sermon series called “Trapped” and I think this would be an awesome backdrop for our stage. Thanks for the idea! :)
