They cut all my sheets to size, the main covers are 1165mm long, 1x 200mm and 1x 115. I gave them the 5 sizes to make a plant pot, all came to £32.
I've used aquarium silicone to glue the pot together, seems to be working.
Here's the pot:

The pot, needs holes drilling, then I need to work out the depth to set it:

Then the front cover needs cutting to fit,

They have a minimum order value, so I paid about £8 to make the value up, I should have just bought a spare piece instead!   Big Grin

That looks good Mike [Image: ZqxxL5Rl.gif]

I would use tensol 12 to stick the acrylic ( Proper acrylic cement ) as silicone doesn't adhere properly and will seperate in a short time.

I used superglue first then covered that with silicone, superglue is basically liquid acrylic: only drawback is it turns the clear plastic white. I would have used tensol 12 but only found out about it after the event!
