I have a plexi bending table and the super expensive plexi specific saw blades to cut a piece to size.
I just haven't had time to make this cover for VCF. It's actually more that there is always something higher on my list of things to do when I'm at Infoage than load up my car with tools. I don't want to do this without being there and able to adjust the fit.
I think the way we get this done is what Evan is doing now... Shaming me into making it by publicly asking where we can get one made. It seems to work for my wife to get me to fix things so maybe they spoke on how to motivate me.
