Glass or Plexiglass? Eddie Bauer overhead doors.

I am trying to create a similar overhead cabinet but am having trouble finding plexiglass with any sort of pattern in it. Can someone tell me if the overhead sliding doors are glass or plexiglass and what thickness they are? 1/8", or 1/4"?

Thanks!

The material used is an EcoResin by 3Form in the "Fossil Leaf Random" pattern. It's pretty pricey stuff - you most likely will have to buy a 48"x96" sheet...not sure of the thickness they used in the EB though. I used 1/8" in a different pattern in our '56 Safari...LOVE it!

3Form has a program called "Reclaim" that offers partial sheets (revolving stock) for discounted prices, but it's still a bit expensive.

Shari,

Thanks so much. I would really like to know what track you used and how you set it up. Pictures would be very helpful if you have them. I am planning a trip out to SLC where they are based out of to pick up a sheet and finish off the cabinets. My brother lives 20 min south of SLC, so the trip is more then justified.

I'd love to go to the 3Form factory - cool!

We re-used our existing track. It's extruded aluminum and is riveted onto the wood. I couldn't find an exact profile as ours but it's similar to this one at Outwater Plastics - the difference being the the extended part for attachment is vertical (inline with the face of the track) rather than horizontal as shown at Outwater - ours is kinda a "m" with a tall leg which is where it's riveted to the wood. Make sense?

Hope this helps...good luck!

Shari

Thanks again Shari, that track will work, I planned on glueing it to a wood strip and then attaching the wood to the backside of the cabinet face.
