My dad bought a big sheet of clear plexi to use to slide into the dog doors and keep the puppy inside when needed. He got it cut at the hardware store, so he ended up with the big leftover piece, too. Its about 3 feet by 2 feet wide. I really want to use it for something, but I have no idea what I could do with it. Or really how to cut it ... but I can figure that out later. Any ideas?

I'm working on getting my blog up, check it out! Smiley

wow, almost the exact size of my desk!

I'd reccommend using it to cover a table or desk if you have one the right size.  you can have a collage under it, and you can change it when ever you want!  I have some (well, it's glass, but same idea) on my desk at home and it's great.

use it to mix paint or ink on.. frame pictures with.. build a sculpture out of..

you can cut it with a plexi cutter.. it's a special kind of exacto-like knife.. usually it has a handle and a blade.. the blade has kind of a hooked part at the end.  go to home depot or lowes and go to where they keep the plexi glass and look around/ask for it.  they should have them there, or in the tool section.

i am moving soon and in my new house i hope to do something with plexi like screen print or paint a mural on a long piece and then attach it to the wall, maybe with a light behind it.

Use it to make a lite bright coffee table! (or any other display-type table). Here's the link on craftster https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24950.0

Swap it like it's HOT...I do personal swaps.

I've painted/stenciled on the backside of one. Allows for a glossy surface on the front,  kinda cool effect. You just have to do layers in reverse so that it appears the way you want when you flip it over.

This is one I did a while ago, to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.
