    An even less expensive way to do this project is use Melamine or Formica instead of the plexiglass. Both are about half the cost of the plexi. Plexi runs about 97 dollars a sheet at the Box store, and melamine and formica are both about 42-45 for a 4×8 sheet. the 3/4 inch melamine could actually be used for the form instead of the 2×4 frame depending on the size and length of the counter tops. So plexi isn’t the easiest nor the cheapest way to get a nice smooth finish on your counter tops.
