This looks like a great way to use acrylic to prop up a light. The moisture exposure is the same on both sides of the vertical pieces, so they shouldn't warp significantly. The horizontal pieces are reinforced by the glued on vertical pieces, making them very resistant to warping. And, it looks great!
