Very nice indeed, Elvis. Were these CNC milled or laser cut?
Thanks! Couldn’t have done it without Nick’s help. I believe all the parts were CNC’d.
I asked because the edges look so nice and clean, so CNC makes sense.
That came out great!!
I used to have a set of four of those squarish glasses. They all got broken over the years and I never knew they were a prop item until a couple of years ago.
I was fortunate enough to buy the two TNG and DS9 glasses in a set of four from an eBay seller not too long ago. Since I had them, once Nick started up this discussion, I just knew I had to get the tray done
I wanted to ask you about the thickness of the acrylic used for the tray bottom and handles. Is it 1/8-in or 1/4-in? I was going to have some parts cut and try making one of these. I thought that it was 1/4-in but TAP plastics by me only stocks the dark red acrylic in 1/8-in and so I wanted to check with you all on the thread about it. Thx
The tray is made of 1/4" red translucent acrylic. Red for the tray and handles. The rails on the bottom are clear.
Thanks! I thought it was 1/4-in so I’m going to see if I can find a different supplier
Look at all those tray sets in the final scene of Voyage Home! I didn’t realize!
I’m surprised they haven’t come up for auction!
Oh, wow. I guess I miscounted when I was watching that recently, lol.
Thought there was only about six. Looks like there’s maybe an even dozen!
I think I need to get back on this project.
The universe definitely doesn’t have enough of these. Make it so.
Thats for sure…we all need a set!!!
I know, old post. But I never realized the small, squatty Romulan ale decanter was being used. I know it’s probably not the one from the movie, but the replica made for TNG.
Is this the same cup? The white ring at top, is that just seeing the top surface from beneath/through the acrylic?
That’s the related cup from the third movie-
Oh! I don’t think I even knew about those! Do they show up anywhere else?
That style of cup also shows up in this scene-
I also stumbled across this recent “appearance” of the red tray-
