What to do with random pieces of plexiglass? Answered

I picked up several pieces of scrap plexiglass and haven't figured out what to do with them.  Ranging in size from 1/4 - 3/4"thick, black white and clear....any creative ideas out there?


One thing i always wanted to do but never had the plexiglass to do it with is to make a pair of lexan knuckles (like brass knuckles.... but lexan) you basically find an outline of the pattern, trace it on the plexiglass and cut away!

Acrylic-Plexiglass is Not Polycarbonate-Lexan.  Plexiglass ii only 15 KJ/m2
on impact strength compared to Lexan which has an impact strength
of 35 KJ/m2
That is why Lexan is mandated for use in food preparation areas.


It depends what size they are as well.

You could make a lamp shade, furniture, desk ornaments, a jenga gun, boxes, boomerangs (although they'd be a pig to see to catch!)...

All depends on what you want to do.
