Prevent when you have developed a pilot hole in the wood.Stage 7 &ndash Place the photo or printable on the plywood. Use double-sided tape to hold it in area. Eliminate protecting masking from the plexiglass and connect with the wooden screw. It is crucial to use a guide screwdriver so you have management on the force and how significantly the screw goes. If not, you can stop up cracking the plexiglass.
