Little update: I got the glue/cleaner in the mail about 2 days ago, and with work and everything tomorrow im going to glue 5/6 of the sides together and leave the bottom open cause that will be accessible by 4 screws.

In about 18 hours expect an update

well quick update, i glued the pieces together but there are little gaps as if it wasnt fitting right so i just ordered some acrylic resin, im going to fill in the gaps and then sand down the sides a little.

In about 3 hours when the glue hardens more, ill take a pic and post as to where i am at now

well the glue did harden but there where to big of gaps, and i made a huge mistake when i was gluing the acrylic i had the pieces laid on some newspaper to soak up any dripping glue. When i went to lift it up the edges where there was some glue it stuck with some newspaper and wont come out unless you scrap it off, ive tried goo-gone, Windex, Novus plastic cleaner.

So tomorrow im going to start all over again the same dimensions but im not going to route the edges im just going to go straight flat

Greetings, BLKKROW.

I left you a PM that may shed some light on your situation, but what I forgot to mention is "wicking".

Beggin' yer pardon for my blurting out without being asked... but the liquid will wick on any surface that it comes into contact with (i.e. newspaper )

When bonding, only the surfaces to be bonded should make contact with the Weld-on. Paper, tape, fabric, other pieces of acrylic... anything will wick the Weld-on and mar the surface...

Kudos to you for forging ahead and keeping a good Spirit.

Mod on, Brother!

It's called a chamfer; routing is a general term for cutting a profile with a router.

The acrylic cuts look nice BTW

well thank you they did look nice until i utterly ruined them lol.

so tomorrow im going to work on all over again good thing i bought extra

i need to play catch up tomorrow i wanted this to be done by January



that is what it looked like sorry for bad lighting but you can see the newspaper glued on the top that will not come off, and kinda the bad edges.

it looked really nice if i could get it to fit perfect. But im going to abandon that idea and just go straight gluing, save me some time and hopefully it will turn out nice.

and thank you to syrillian and everyone who is helping along with this.

quick update:

tomorrow is my day off i have one more piece to cut, then hopefully im going to sand and make everything perfectly flat and ready to glue.

I also received my hole saws/ from mcmasters. Btw they are a great company to deal with, their interface is a bit confusing at first but after everything they are ultra cheap, and ship fast.

So hopefully tomorrow ill get all the sanding and gluing so it actually looks like a box.

well i for the life of me cant get anything to work, so i think im scraping this project.

i cant get the straight edges that i want so i cant bond acrylic to acrylic. But i do have these 1" acrylic blocks that i was going to use as corner reinforcement, im thinking of bonding the acrylic to that and leaving the edges not glued, will this hold really well?

if so ill have to cut another piece cause i got a frustrated and scratched it on accident

Heyah, BLKKROW.

So... If you are willing to try again, perhaps you could post a pic of how you are cutting the acrylic so that we could give you some advice.

I am assuming that you are using a straight-guide? What kind of tool and what type of blade?

If you wish to wash your hands of this I will certainly understand.... I feel that way at least twice a day.
