1/4" Plexi Glass sheet (had on hand from another project)
Dymo Label Maker
Nuts and bolts in the following sizes (bolts as short as you can get for the size it comes in)
Step 1: The Layout
Once I had it cut down to size my next issue was how to mark my layout without marking the plexi itself. The benefit of using the plexi came in nicely here. I just took a piece of paper and laid out a 1" x1" grid pattern on the paper and set it under the plexi on my workbench.
Step 2: Prepping The Hardware
Step 3: Putting It Together
For the smallest nuts, I found it worked well to use the bolt to help hold it in place as I was setting it. Just be careful not to glue the nut and bolt together by accident.
A Note here on the Super Glue, I choose to use it since I had some on hand. I did a strength test by gluing a half inch bolt to a scrap piece first. I was not able to easily break it off so I am fairly confident it will hold up just fine. Long term, well time will tell. If it ever does give I will re-set with a good 2 part epoxy.
