It is not recommended to cut tempered glass. Any attempt to cut or manipulate tempered glass may result in the glass shattering. The process of tempering the glass will make the glass harder and also more brittle.

Valentine's Day is fast approaching and it's time to get creative with your gift and decor ideas for your significant other. If you're searching for something meaningful, practical, stylish, and with heart, consider sprucing up your home with glass products.

Before you begin constructing your aquarium, think about its volume and measurements. As a general rule, the larger the tank, the thicker the acrylic. Always use moulded acrylic for an aquarium rather than the cheaper extruded acrylic sheet.

Assemble your aquarium on a solid, flat surface. Use a spirit level and right-angle support blocks. You can also hold the sheets in position the sheets with masking tape, as we did in this example. We also recommend placing a thin, soft cloth on the surface so as not to scratch the acrylic and to prevent your workbench or table form any spilt glue. Place a support block on the bottom sheet and put on your vinyl gloves.

There are advantages and disadvantages to using either glass or acrylic for your 12-foot custom aquarium, and the Custom Aquariums team has extensively evaluated what type of custom aquariums to use. For example, we have to consider not only the installation difficulties but also the long-term viability of our investment. After analyzing the difference, the choice between glass or acrylic aquariums is quite clear because most often you are sacrificing a long-term benefit of glass aquariums in exchange for a short-term benefit of acrylic aquariums. Please see our glass vs acrylic page for more information on our evaluation of glass vs. acrylic 12-foot custom aquariums.

P.S. Everything Stained Glass follower Janusz N has added a simple idea for racking. He uses a plate rack from IKEA for small pieces of glass and says it is portable and works well. I think we can see that below! Thanks Janusz.

Trudy Brown uses old dishwasher racks. She keeps her larger pieces of glass stored in the racks under my table. When I want to check out some glass she just rolls out the rack and start sorting. When done the rack is rolled back under the table. What a great idea! They make great glass storage units.

Milly,Thank you for having thus site and sharing your expertise. I have started to do some stain glass again after about a 8 or 10 yr rest! I just showed my 12 yr and grandson how to cut glass. Grind and foil.I wanted to add a tip for cleaning the grinder out after water is poured out. I use a wide putty knife /spatula.

Hi Milly, Thanks for this space. It is great to see what other artisans are using in their workshops etc.) My grinder sits on a plastic waffle grid (The hard plastic tiles (?) you can use to cover long fluorescent lights in ceilings) that I cut to size with wire cutters (that was a bit tedious but worth the effort for keeping control of all the bits of glass etc.) so the little bits and splashes fall through the little squares and out of the way until it is time to clean up. I use fluted polypropylene (old election or business signs) to make my splash guards. They are easy to cut to any size. I just score the first layer of the back into thirds, (just enough so the plastic sheet will fold), then I tape that seam with duct tape so it is flexible and will stand at any angle I want then just set it up around the grinder. It is easy to clean up since it wipes easily and storing is easy too because weighs so little and can be folded down with the flexible duct tape hinges. I hope everyone who is not homebound these days is staying well and safe from the virus. Take care everyone!

Saving your pipes is a very important point Peggy. Ground glass sinks to the bottom and could cause blockages. I can see you with a turkey baster in each hand and a diaper to boot! Great ideas thanks for taking the time to let us know about them.

I just love all the ideas, tips, and tricks that you post on your website. I also love the courses you offer to teach us the art of making stained glass!!! Being able to belong to the Hub FB group is such a wonderful plus. So much information is shared thanks to your efforts!!!

Milly, I came across your site while exploring Pinterest for design ideas. Your site has been a great resource. I have just embarked on the stained glass adventure. My daughter enrolled me in a class as a gift. Fast forward to her recent gift of a dozen boxes of glass scrap and a glass grinder. I added an glass area to my workspace. I am using a cubby and plastic storage boxes. Concern about my two young (5 & 7) grandchildren prompted me to purchase an inexpensive mesh fire screen to place in front of it to shield them from sharp edges. They are not allowed in there without supervision, of course, but this gives me a little more peace of mind.

I use a set of shallow filing drawers for my glass as they stand neatly in my work area. I also save the powdered glass from the grinder, to hopefully use in my kiln on clear glass to see what effect I get. Waste not want not and I never pour it down the sink as it would build up in the sink trap.

Thank you for all these tips, amazing, lots to be thinking about and lots to do/ achieve. Thanks to you all and especially Milly for all the e- mails and tips, keep em coming, all help appreciated very much as I have re started doing stained glass again after retirement

I store my sheets of glass in a hanging file folder that sits in a plastic milk crate. Each sheet has its own file folder and if I have a couple like shades I can combine them using a folder w/o the metal clips.The crates are the size the kids used to hold vinyl records. I have at least six of the crates and it is easy to locate the glass I am looking for.

20227 N. 126th Ave.Thanks for all the neat ideas for organizing our shops. I normally keep my leftover cut glass pieces for possible use in future projects. I use plastic bins with covers and label each box with basic colors and/or styles of glass stored in each bin. Makes it easy to find useable pieces without having to buy a new full piece.

I wanted to share a couple of ideas that we have used in our class to store glass. One is using plastic shoe boxes for used glass. They are see through and sturdy, as well as stackable, and easy to mark what color of glass the box is holding. Another idea that I have been using for storing a sheet of glass is a dish holder.

I also wanted to thank you for sharing so much useful information in regards to stained glass. I have shared your link with a few of the girls in my class, and they too have found your tips very useful.

Try a full face shield similar to welding shield. Wood workers use them with turning lathe. They are light weight and cover your whole face. You can flip them up when needed. They fit very comfortably. Handy if you wear regular glasses. Your glasses stay clean.

I use 2 3-ring binders standing up behind the grinder, and the grinder has a piece of clear floatglass protecting your eyes. The grinder and binders sit in a boot tray, the kind used to keep the melting snow from spilling onto the floor. It works for me!

Hi Bud, great idea, but, for me, I feel like everything that people have said here, limits my movement cause I usually set my pattern/glass pieces on the left next to the grinder. Thank God my shop has a tile counter that I just wipe down.

My stained glass instructor knows someone who designed CapN Shield. I bought a few. They fit over a baseball cap and are very light weight. They can be rinsed or cleaned so you can always see through them. I have used the same one for quite some time.

Hi! Milly! I use a 5 or 10 gallon fish aquarium for a splash guard. They cost about 5- 10 dollars, are easy to clean and you can see through the top clearly. I have a small Battery LED that sits on top to give me great lighting where I need it. No wires for the light.

I visited a double glazing shop. They gave me scrap glass and I Copperfoiled a top, sides and back to make a splash protector. The advantage is that it leaves base free for grinder to sit steady. Cost just my time and a bit of readily available materials. The thicker glazing material provides strength and protection.

I have enjoyed and utilized points of interest from your wealth of stained glass knowledge many times! This tidbit about storage made my day, so simple but effective. I have glass stacked in various mixed containers from projects all over my work area, your storage system gives me hope for the order I have dreamed about. I wonder why I never thought of it . . . . . . Thanks for sharing!!!!!
