If you want to stay with scary sharp method (sandpaper) and all you can find is the coarser grits, try an auto parts store and you will be able to find a lot of different grits in wet and dry sandpaper all the way up to 2000 grit. I would stay away from the plexiglas and go with glass as it is harder and will not yield. For sure, get a honing guide and you can get that from Lie Nielsen at If you are just starting out, no need to invest in expensive chisels like what you will find on their website but when you do get serious, Lie Nielsen is the best by far for any hand tools.
