Bob, how did you get the DTI writing on the plywood box?

Looks good,

Thanks for the 'how to' Bob,
I'd been quoted 36 for a new glass which i thought was really good since that also included shipping the dti to and from America but i then saw your post and thought i'd try your method first...It worked a treat....Although it took a few attempts to make a piece without it getting to hot then making tiny bubbles in it..your instructions were excellent....
Thankyou, your cleverness... :bow: :bow: :thumbup: :mmr: :headbang:

                I do like to see a bit of ingenuity, a nice DTI brought back to life with skill and an odd bit of plastic. Nice box.
