Prototype of a prototype

Since I decided that my final project would involve layers of acrylic glass, I have been playing around with the material to get a feel for its potential uses.  I cut several small pieces, stacked them vertically, and sanded a curved edge.

The belt sander makes quick work of the acrylic but has the unfortunate effect of melting the layers together at various points (see the red mark above).  However, sanding by hand creates a very smooth and reflective surface, and I will be exploring that technique more in the coming weeks.
