The first step was to decide what shape and size
the case was to be. After coming up with a shape and size, it was
time to go buy the material. The blue sided Plexiglas comes covered with a
thin film of plastic so it wouldn't get scratched while working with it.
The light brown paper sided pieces were better to work with because, (1)
the paper was much thicker than the thin blue film, (2) being paper, I could layout and draw on it much
easier. The finished size for the case was going to be 14" L X
12" D X 13 1/2" H. The thickness of the outside pieces were
1/4" and the shelves were 3/16"
The reason for the two kinds of Plex was the
stuff was in the marked down rack of bigger pieces so they were cheaper.
Lesson number one, don't buy anymore blue sided Plexiglas in the
future...it's not worth it. Here is what it looked like laid out before
anything was cut.
