clear round acrylic occasional table
Florida Plastics Projects
plasticsjournal
At 25" high and 20 diameter, this experiment in design, was made for my own enjoyment.
I am pretty sure hardly no one will want to pay what I need to make a profit.
Sometimes, that is the way it works, you just pay for your design therepy that way.
Rods are 2" diameter cast acrylic.

Zebra wood slab and acrylic coffee table
Florida Plastics Projects
plasticsjournal
These are customer submitted pictures, you can see the Miami influence.
I only supply the clear bases, and they are free to design with wood, glass, marble etc.
They wanted a custom thickness, 1", not many people will order that, as it costs about
twice what a very adequate 3/4 stock table bases would be.




A thicker, larger acrylic "C" table added to line
Florida Plastics Projects
plasticsjournal
Like the smaller, thinner "C" table that has been well recieved, this size was requested many times as a custom, so I just added it to my stock line.
As I expected there is a lot of price resistance on the one item, I may not sell many and drop it from the line.
The thicker 3/4" material, and extra labor and shipping demand I put pricepoint about twice what the smaller 1/2" table is.


clear coffee table is less of a visual block for balcony
Florida Plastics Projects
plasticsjournal
At these apartments, the view is king, and primary reason they are there.
Any thing to aid or enhance the outside siteline is welcome.
The 3/4" thick acrylic material of this table, holds up even with more outside exposure.
They are in stock and ready to ship from Amazon
Most people are comfortable ordering from amazon, based on reviews, and return policy,;
and this product is no different.


For us, Florida storm was a very minor problem
Florida Plastics Projects

Sure, we had a few inches of water, 2 days of lost power, some lost inventory, but, we are 100 percent up and running.
Still doing the church plaques, this 3 color yellow one came out real nice, in my opinion.
It's about 10" wide.  It's nice they allow me some fredom making those, as long it is a direct verse quote of
one version of the bible.  I undertand, they can't allow dissemination of any person perspectives on the subject at hand.
Will try to keep posts more regular, have been scrambling to keep up with amazon and ebay acrylic tables sales.
So, I have nothing to complain about.


"milk money" logo sandwich type display sign
Florida Plastics Projects
plasticsjournal
This one is again for my own design therapy pleasure. It's about 11" high,
and just printed on a large format printer, in opaque film. It would be better
in a translucent film, but that is hard to do.


large vertical menu holder (clear acrylic)
Florida Plastics Projects
plasticsjournal
This one is 11" x 14" high, x 3" deep, and does the job, very well.
The layers are 3/16" thick material, instead of the standard 1/8".
I am adding some clear channel on top, to keep squeezed, it's ok now,
but just in case it opens up in the future.
That myapapaya has good soup, the cooks know what they are doing.


Even the very best premium acrylic has factory defects
Florida Plastics Projects
plasticsjournal
But we work around these sort of "watermarks".
Luckily, they don't occur too often.
As the years go by the technology has less and less defects of any kind.
Some other acrylic sheet defects are, dark and light "inclusions" or basically
dirt that got in the mold during casting somehow.

It gets expensive for me to scrap the whole sheet or table, as there is no way remove most
of these severe "blurbs".


Clear stand for Harman Kardon glass speakers
Florida Plastics Projects
plasticsjournal
WIth 24 different tables in our line, this customers choice of the acrylic "C" table is good for their location.
I don't know much about speaker sound quality, I always though the hard glass, or even acrylic surface was not good.
It's a novel look.



The speakers can be found at:

hard maple laser engraving job, with a 3/4" thick black acrylic base
Florida Plastics Projects
plasticsjournal
These are about 13" high, so I needed a base of some sort, as the 1" thick maple would be tippy.
The raw material wood boards I get from ebay.  Ebay prices are great, but the shipping doubles it,
making it a little higher than a trip to a local hardwood shop, like General Hardwoods, here in
Fort Lauderdale.  Make sure to get the same wood thickness to make the laser engravers job easier.
The wood is already surface planed, so prep is easy, just cut to size, and a light orbital sand.

Again, the design aspect of these projects are like therapy for me, taking the noise of manufacturing away.


coffee cup sleeve recycle bin (acrylic)
Florida Plastics Projects
plasticsjournal
I did this on a whim, and they used it.
I felt good about it, doing my green thing of sorts.
The public reaction, is yet to be measured,
there may be some objections based on hygeine concerns etc.
Plus, if you are spending $4 on a cup of premium coffee, would
you expect a fresh, new, sleeve?

There are 2 layers, one green, and one blue, both
transparent 1/2 acrylic material.  A pretty affluent look.

If you are in the Fort Lauderdale area, thier coffee is the uttermost.


more screen printed clear acrylic bible verse plaques
Florida Plastics Projects
plasticsjournal
These are made from offcuts of my tables jobs.
My stock table sizes had zero offcuts purposely,
to keep waste, and prices down. This is the first time
I did a 3 color screen print, it was not that much more handling.
