DIY Plexiglass Window Answered

Hey guys, time for another update of what I've been up to lately in my spare time. The other day I just finished a project, where I decided to take some scrap plexiglass and install it as a window in the top of my subwoofer, just like how more expensive pre-built subwoofer boxes have them.

I tried to take pictures as I went along with it. Trust me, I may only have a handful of picture, but it took A LOT. Most of the hard work was chiseling the MDF board to fit a groove for the plexiglass to sit in and make a seal.

P.S.: Chiseling MDF board is like chiseling cardboard, very easy to take too much out!

Also, does anyone have any ideas as to HOW I could get some of the deeper scratches out of the plexiglass??? I'll be taking it apart to re-bevel the edge of the seal once I find the damn wood router, so when I do that I'd like to buff the plexiglass out a bit.

Also, I think I own bragging rights for doing this.

 Pffftttt. Spade bits and reciprocating saw? Chainsaw is what you need.

 and you get bragging rights when you take that chainsaw and carve up a chunk of clear ice and put speakers in them.

 And then consequently kill said speakers from melting ice...
