I worked in the glass industry for many years. Glass is not wood but it is still cut, shaped, ground, polished and attached to form structural objects, After years in the industry it was still a thrill to see it break as planned. Inside cuts were always the hardest. Laminated glass as used in windshields and off road equipment could be a challange, especially if cut in the field under less than ideal conditions. Glass is different than wood in that it can nhot be mended. That is be sure your sins will find you out., the broken corner is out in the wide open for all to see.
The glass stand in the pictures was built on the day my grandmother died. Some fourty years ago. It started out life as a record stand, then a cassette holder, and now as a cd case. Even that is outdated now as most of my music is stored in digital format on a stick (and the stick is not wood either)
1 Glass Display case the top layer with shells has not been open for over fourty years
2 CD stand and leather trunks
3 Music storage with sea shells
4 Pottery. One of the most fun things I have ever done.
5 Pottery. His and hers cups. His has been used almost every day for the last 17 years
6 Key chain, yes it is oak
