My family entered plastics distribution and fabrication in 1968. Dad listened to the guy in "The Graduate" and bought in. I was a teen with access to a shop filled with Plexiglas® Acrylic sheets, Lexan®, Plastic Sheets & Fiberglass sheet. Add UHMW, PTFE, plastic glue, Multiwall polycarbonate, Seaboard, architectural and engineering plastics. 40 years later I educate our team on new materials and processes - to customers worldwide. It’s new every day.

Plexiglass Seats in Swimming Pool
So we got a call from somewhere in Alabama where a pool is being built... and in this pool will be "sunken" seating around a clear Plexiglas table. The seats will be plexi and lights will be placed underneath. We understand that the machined areas of these seats will have mosaic tiles place in them.
Here's the machining in process - these disks are about 12" in diameter and 2" thick!
Stay tuned for pictures of the actual pool later this summer....
