Made out of 1.25" plexi, is about 8x13" and includes a matching plexi base.
Had a devil of a time [oops, no pun intended, really] making the base, I snapped 2 endmills trying and it usually is not that much of a problem, both endmills were new and I almost went into shoprage when the 2nd one snapped.
I figured maybe because the plexi was freezing cold it was extra hard and brittle, so I took a chunk in to warm up for a few hours, also reduced feed speeds from 200 ipm to 100 [You usually want a high feed rate when routing plexi to avoid heat buildup]. Worked like a charm, I made this base and another that I needed for a 3D gun, came out perfect not a single chip.
Fit was so tight I had to hammer it in, just the way I like it. This one I still have to buff out a few scratches, some are hard to see until it is lit up.

Object was mirrored, necessary in this model due to lettering at top ,,, And object was subtracted in properties, as opposed to the "add to" you would use in wood.
