I realize that some of us at one time or another will work with Acrylic, so will I. Sooo .... I went looking for easy ways to Polish the edges of cut acrylic & found these which I found very interesting & though I would share them on here for others to view. Hope they are of some help. Have fun & stay safe when doing it.

Great videos, Chris! And here they are in the imbedded player for those that want to watch them here:





And I think this one might be better suited for one of the Tutorial Sections (TARDIS? or Console? since we don't have an "Other Tutorial" Section - not sure which it would go in); but still in a Tutorial Section rather than this Other Props Reference Section since these are "How To" videos rather than reference images or videos.

Thanks Dino for putting them up, I tried, but it didn't work, so I just put the links.
I used the Tube button above & inserted the url, but like I said it didn't work.
I wasn't sure where to put this but thought someone might put it where it belongs, (sorry to make work for the Mods)
