A Simple Ocean Effect...
Step 1: Cutting The “Ocean Effect Plate A” (OEP) to SizeAfter measuring the black base of the IMEX display case, upon which the OEP will be glued, I transfer the measurement to the OEP and cut it to width on the table saw.
The OEP is easily cut with the table saw, however the saw blade can melt the plastic shavings that are given off from the cutting process and the shavings can stick to the cut edge of the OEP.
These shavings are easily scraped away with a fingernail or a razor knife. Sandpaper helps to smooth any rough edges that are left over.
After the melted shavings have been scraped and sanded from the edge, the OEP can be cut to length with a power miter saw. This saw did not melt the shavings to the cut edge.
