Acrylic Blocks

When our customer first ordered These blocks I wasn’t sure About the end result. It is very difficult to get a nice even finish to a sanded block, my initial thought was why would you have these huge lumps of acrylic which look so impressive polished and sand them, some of these blocks were 200mm square by 600mm tall making them quite awkward to handle especially if I had needed to hold them underneath a buffing wheel! The initial saw cuts in the blocks were quite deep which wasn’t surprising knowing how the centre of the material tends to be softer makin it burn/melt easier. This meant I had to start off sanding with an orbital sander using very course paper gradually using finer and finer paper, the final finish I had to put on by hand to all 6 sides of the 18 blocks, hard work but worth it the final result looks great especially when they are all set out as in the picture.
