    I've tried everything and what works best is weld-on #16.I was amazed at how strong it sticks and stayed very clear between the pieces.I even had pieces held by the side angles just side by side but at a 120° angle of course i had to apply several coats till i almost fill the gap but i had to apply force to crack it. Epoxy especially that one is messy and dosn't stick very well. It cracks almost just looking at it :eyebrow:
    You can get it here. Depending on where you are, the delivery is a bit slow.Took me 8 days to get it to canada originated from San Diego

    I live in Israel so I don't think it's the best for me...

    P.S : do you know how can i make a plexiglass white instead of clear?

    The cheapest way is light sanding but it takes time and effort or if you can get a stuff called glass frost that works very well.

    Btw, if you go to the weld-on site, they probably will give you a place closer to you, they sell world wide :thumb:

    Epoxy is really good for encasing and filling, but it's not very good for gluing on smooth surfaces.

    So can you suggest me a material that will look elegant and not hard to use ?
    I want to order exact sizes and just connect with glue or pins or nits
