Cutting Plexiglass

Unlike wood, plexiglass is extremely difficult to cut without breaking it and melting it. For do-it-yourself good projects, home improvement shops usually recommends an inexpensive scoring knife. Although the scoring knife works fairly well for small plexiglass, larger pieces tends to break unevenly. That is due to the physical limitation of our hands' inability to apply even pressure over large areas. After spending considerable amount of time figuring out how to cut a large piece of plexiglass at home, with inexpensive tools, I have decided to document it here for everyone's benefit.
