Make some small stylish trays, to serve coffee (or tee).

I use Plexiglas (remaining from a former project). You could use real glass too, but it would require more skills and tools. Plexiglas is very easy to cut, but will get scratches, eventually.

Step 1: Needed Stuff

  • 2 mm thick Plexiglas (acrylic glass)
  • Hard wood strips (I used beech) of rectangular profiles
  • Hard wood strip of round profile
  • Cutting mat, metal ruler, cutter
  • Wood, paper, and epoxy glues
  • Wood primer
  • Masking tape
  • Clamps (optional)
  • Jigsaw
  • Sanding machine (or just sand paper)
  • Drill (at best: drill press)
Very elegant design. If you don't mind me asking, what are those round brown things next to the coffee cup in the first picture; perhaps cookies of some sort?
Very nice!<br>Just one question about step 4. Did you cut the plexiglass with a Stanley knife and then broke the rest?<br>How deep did you have to cut?
Yes exactly. Somehow the text of step 4 got lost, but thanks to the history feature I could restore it.
Ok, thanks but how deep must you cut with the knife (half way?).
The cut is here to just mark where the plexi should break.<br><br>I just measured... Approx 0.2 mm deep, on each side; it's OK for a 2.4 mm thick plexi.
ok, thanks!
Thanks for the pdf. I have students that will want to build a few of these in shop class. These will make great gifts.
You're welcome.<br> <br> I'm, glad to hear it's being inspirational. Don't hesitate to make your own designs (so you'd need the ODG format). Keep in mind that my attached docs are in metric units (A4 sheet, grid in cm).<br> <br> Please post some results!<br>
very nice! though when i saw the thumbnail i thought it had a mini zen garden under the plexiglas. still a great gift idea.
adding a mini Zen garden, what a great idea it would be!<br>
Please print your sketches to pdf and repost the files.
These are beautiful... Great pictures too... Well done and awesome I'ble!
