Question Yes..... another stupid question!

So if any of you have read my other post lately, I am a beginner and I want to wax my own board, I'm trying to spend as little money as possible. This time, I have a question about scrapers. Would I be able to cut a rectangular piece of acrylic/plexiglass? Or is it something more complicated then it seems?

If you already have a piece of plexi, you can cut it by scoring each side with a sharp blade and snapping it off on the score-line. You'll probably wanna sand the edges after. It doesn't always break clean...

I have plexi laying around and blades and saws to cut it. I just didn't know if the edge on a real scraper has any angel or anything funky.
