I have a shadow box I am making that has plexiglass set in a groove along the inside, so its basically trapped by the frame. My question is how do you guys finish something like this? On my other 2 shadowboxes I did for my daughters, i glued up 3 sides, partially finished all the pieces then glued them together and put the poly on once it was assembled. I wasnt able to keep all the poly off the plexi, so i wasnt really happy with the way it turned out; though you cant really see it.
Now I am thinking that I could use painters tape along the edges of the plexi…but really I wanted to see how more experienced people did this…
I am planning on staining and then finishing with a varnish mix…
