Full SizeBRONZE Bar Sign
You are offerding on a full size replica of The Bronze Bar sign that hung over the entrance to the iconic bar/nightclub throughout the early seasons of the show. This sign was hand made by me and is a FULL SIZE replica. It measures 4 feet wide, 1 foot tall and is 8 inches thick. It's constructed out of 3/4" sanded plywood. The plywood has been notched to accept the 1/4" wood back panel and 1/4" plastic front panel. The entire box is finish nailed with the exception of one side which is held on by 6 screws. Thisdetachable side allows access to the removable plastic front, as well as to the lighting inside. The entire box is then finish sanded, primed and painted. The inside of the box has been painted white to help reflect the light. The outside is painted satin black and then is slightly scuffed to dull it more and give it a more industrial look. I tried not to make it look too "Pretty". The original was, after all, hangingfrom a grungy industrial building thatposed asa bar/nightclub.
Speaking of hanging, this sign is NOT lacking in that department! Just like the original,I usedheavy duty black chainattached to large eyelets that mount to the top of the sign. This chain set-up is COMPLETE overkill, but it gives it that rugged industrial look that the original Bronze sign had. Each side of the chain is 2 feet long, givingyou plenty of options for how high to hang it.
The originalsign from the show hadone major flaw, the lighting. It never seemed to be fully lit up.I decided to use LED lighting. I chose this type of lightingfor a few reasons. It is brighter when compared to traditional lighting set-ups and it weighs next to nothing. Seeing as the signis not light weight to begin with, anywhere I can save weight is a plus! The LED lighting I chosecomes with a wireless remote that allows thesignto be lit with 16 different colors.These lightscan also be set it to strobe different colors, or even fade between them all (my personal favorite)! Check out thevideo belowof it in action! You can also go to my website for more pictures of the construction process. Go towww.buffypinball.com and click on "The Bronze" tab in the top menu.
As stated before, this sign is rather large and it weighsjust under 30 lbs. So shipping will not be cheap. Please keep this in mind when offerding. I will input the info into the shipping calculator, so hopefully it will generate an accurate quote for you. Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you for looking!
