Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Modifying a coffee table to display printed pictures
Somehow affix them to 1 backing, probably a single piece of card stock or thin cardboard, and then sandwich it between the table and either a thin sheet of lexan or plexiglass (whichever one you can easily drill, i forget which atm).
My goal is to be able to replace and reuse the artwork by just taking the top panel off, and to add another inch or so or height to the table which will make it a tad more comfortable to type on.
I want to somehow secure the lexan to the table, would the best way be to just drill a hole through the table/panel and put in screws/washers? Or is there an easier way to do it that will keep the lexan panel steady.
I have only worked with pre-cut lexan and that was simply replacing old lexan panels with new ones (ddr pad).
What do I need to know about drilling lexan? Where would I normally get a piece of that size? Do I need any special drill bit to cut it? I have a basic black and decker power drill.
