Here's a simple way to clean up the rough edges of tablesaw cuts in acrylic

If you get too much chipping when cutting the acrylic panes on your tablesaw, here's a way around the problem: Using the finest-tooth blade you have, cut 4-1/4x6-1/4" blanks. Then cut a piece of 3/4"-thick scrap to 4x6". One at a time, adhere the blanks to the scrap with double-faced tape, centering the blank on the scrap. Chuck a flush-trim bit in your table-mounted router and trim the blanks to finished size.
