I would do this:

You'd need three pieces of wood
Screws or brackets at the arrows
and a long light fixture
BUT you could see!!!

wow! This is fabulous!
I'm thinking of taking on Roman blinds for our new house, but I'm fairly certain they won't be this crazy cool!
Kudos:)

What acid are you using for etchant?  I was very sad when I found out our Radio Shack would no longer be carrying PCB etchant Sad

Shucks, thanks y'all. I've been in one of those needing affirmation kind of moods, so it's much appreciated Kiss
I've started keeping a pretty regularly updated blog of metal crafting adventures if anyone wants to follow progress on pieces:)

-Zataran's Jambalaya Mix
-Not marketed as such, but Vegan!
-cheap- under $2-add your own favourite veggies (or faux meats)
-Spicy, Easy, Awesome! 5/5

It is deliciously hard to stop eating, so be careful with your portion control.*

While making this today I was reading the label and found a newly listed ingredient, MSG. ewwww.  I take back the awesome rating and replace it with a yummy chemicals that may be neurotoxic rating.  No wonder it's hard to stop eating with MSG crack in it! oh well.

Stars are usually better as a cabochon.  If there is a local rock shop, surely there is a local lapidarist who would happily cut whatever you have.  Try to find someone who has worked with stars before to get the best cut.  It's really a pretty simple process of grinding with wet tools. To do it easily though, the tools are a bit pricey. I buy rough on ebay to cut, so you may be able to sell them that way, if you want to sell them after all that work!

I didn't know Trader Joe's had a line of heat-and-eat Indian foods. Cool!   The only Trader Joe's I know of is about two hours from me.  I've been once. They seem to have a lot of good products.
Just FYI-They do have excellent products, but they are mostly findable in other grocery stores under their original names.  Trader Joe's Indian is made by the Tasty Bite company.  It's often a bit cheaper at Joe's, but not if you're using that much gas to get there!
