Default My interpretation of one of Steve Good's Patterns

It just so happens that I have an uncle close by that owns a glass company. When I was over there the other day I asked for some 1/4" plexiglass to try to saw. After a few attempts I found the right speed to be able to cut it without melting it. I attempted to make one of Steve Good's ornaments. After the ornament was done it looked nice, but way too see-thru, so I decided to sand it to make it look like etched glass. I am very pleased with how it came out and I think I may like it more than the ones I made out of wood.

I hope you enjoy.

That looks very pretty! I've done this before and the ornaments reflect the colored lights on the tree. Nice work.

Agree. The frosted look definitely sets it off. Nice work.

That's perfect qball, you definately don't want shiney. That would reflect the light real well. Good Job. Perk

I never thought of sanding the ones I made out of Plexiglass. I usually use the differnet colored plexiglass. Thanks for the idea!

Thanks Doug

I cut it at about 1/4 cutting speed with a size 2 Reverse Tooth Blade. I plan on using a size 5 to stack cut 3 at a time, but I just have to watch the speed so they don't melt together.

Very nice work. I like the effect of the sanding, it does look like etched glass. I think I have some plexiglass in the shop. May be I will giveit a try. saw dust
