Hey everyone, sorry if this was posted in the wrong section or if this has been asked before.
What I need is an 8’ X 3’ sheet of plexiglass(or material you know of) that will be used as the top of a table I’m making.
Here is the idea so far:
Frame out a 8’ X 3’ large rectangle with 2’ X 4’s
The sides and bottom I will attach some sort of sheet wood that I can paint / stain.
The top I want to attach the plexiglass to, through screws?
My main question is where can I get a strong enough piece to support weight (I understand that I will need supports in the middle of the table no matter what).
I’ve looked at a few websites and they say 150-200 dollars a sheet for .25” thickness.
Is that a good price? Should I look at other alternatives to plexiglass?
