    Post acrylic case, anyone tried it?

    I was just wondering, i was taking measurments earlier and it appears that i won't have enough room to get what i want to in my low profile case, so that gives me option B, make my own case.

    I am thinking acrylic but i have no idea how to bond the two pieces together (bonding one piece of acrylic to the other, such as corners and edges, etc...)...

    Anyone have any recommendations

    Thanks

    Cool

    There is acrylic glue, or you can use hardware store angle irons.

    I bought a big 1/4 inch thick sheet of Lexon from home depot. It would make a VERY NICE case. But, I didnt have the toosl to cut it. i was using a jigsaw and well lets just say it looks like crap. I was goign to use L brackets and screws to hold it together. What kind of company might make a case for me or is anyone else intereasted in trying to?
