Can you please send a picture of the gate/lock setup? What is the thickness of the lexan sheet that needs to be cut?

How much of the door did you plan on covering in Lexan? Personally I think that the Lexan will take away from the look of that beautiful door. I think you would be better getting some decorative steel mesh or some decorative stamped steel and have it tack welded onto the inside then spray paint the entire door to match. In any event...the Lexan can be cut slowly with either a bandsaw or a table saw with a fine tooth blade.
