>Has any one turned plexiglass? I need to make a base for a fountian it is actualy a foutian base for a statue I was going to use mahogany and then thought about some plexiglass that I have. I figured I would cut it close to round and then give it a spin. all I have is a live cinter do you think that wil hold it well enough to get a shape to it? kind of an oge shape that will hold some copper or brass tube in place with some holes in it to direct the watter flow. Thanks ernie also how far will I need to sand to get most of the scratches out 500 grit?
