it is jut 6 sheets of plexi and then u have to drill them out and use corner brackets to put them together to make the sides nice and shiney after the cuts you file sand, wetsand and buff on a wheel. And you have yourself a nice cube
Personally I am making plexi top inspired b the original xbox top except with my own modifications should b sick when i am done.

do a quick search on google, there will be loadsa 'plexiglass basics' pages, and lots of 'how to use plexiglass', 'forming plexiglass' you get the idea!
good luck, it really is trixky stuff to get perfect, it's VERY easy to do a botch job,
the hard part is getting the measurements just right :-)
you may find it easier to make two plexu U shapes that can mate together to form a box

I remember looking at this when I was trying to find little things to cram a mini ITX board into. covers everything fromadhesives, to shanding, to drilling/bolting, to heating plexi.
I'll be doing a tut w/ patterns for my plexi box real soon. It's more than just the standard square.
