Plexiglas Bar


The main components of this bar are aluminum curved truss, frosted clear acrylic sheet, and MDF pedestals covered with a brushed pewter countertop laminate. I was contracted to build this for Creative Visions while working as a freelancer.


The basic shape was specified by Creative Visions, but I designed the components and pieces in AutoCAD. The 1/2″ clear acrylic sheet was cut by a third party CNC, based on the shape I designated, and then frosted by me using a random orbital sander. I built the legs from MDF and covered them with the laminate myself.


The bar was designed to be modular, so it could be used in a variety ways for different shows. Here, it is being used in a serpentine configuration as a seating area.


At smaller events, one quarter of the full bar is sufficient.
