    As a construction note, these gimmick letters are really hard to work with, I would not recommend it. There were 2 entirely separate iterations I tried with smaller grid sizes, but there was no way to make an open center work. Well, after something like 12 hours, here we are.

      Awesome grid - the effort definitely paid off! And it's very interesting to hear the details behind the construction, too.
