Seven windows apprx 60”x20”, non operational, glass rectangles w/stop. She wants wood, no plastic. 9 lites. I’m going to get the smallest mull I can find, cut to fit. How adhere to glass? Need to do both sides so you can’t see back of mull and adhesive from outside?

I am not clear what you are asking. Are you trying to turn a window into a divided light window?

In all of the faux divided light windows I’ve seen, the muntins are built as a frameless grid that attaches at its ends to the window rails and sashes. Typically held in place with a clip having a little tounge that slides between the glass and the rail or sash holding the glass in place.

The faux muntins are not glued to the glass anywhere. The idea is to make them removable for cleaning and/or replacing the glass.

Yes. But I want to cut, attach wood to glass. Caulk, paint, get check

Mine use something like a mini button catch to hold them in place. Easy in, easy out for cleaning.

C.R.Laurence makes some extra strength double sided tape,
or just use silicone.

If you want Muntins, you can silicone them on, or clip them on. Commercial fake ones are clipped so you can remove them and clean the glass etc.

I’m aware of those, but not what I want. These are glass slabs, set into a frame and stopped w/quarter round. Similar to how you’d a transom. Build frame, run stop, set in glass, run more stop

Clear silicone. Thanks. I’ve come across, velcro hot glue, clear gorilla glue, but i think clear silicone will be best

Search “simulated divided light tape” or sdl tape.

It’s common and there is a entire industry around it.

How thick are the glass “slabs”? I suggest making a simple mock-up before you get too far along with this. I think that you will easily be able to see the backsides of the fake muntins. I have a couple of steel entry doors that have thermopane glass held in place by being sandwiched between two fiberglass grids made to give the divided light look. A very common design. You can easily see the backside of the grids.

Like regular glazing tape, its typically a destructive process to remove once adhered.

Any reason you are not doing them as a single grid unit? Individual bars would not be typical.

Not a typical installation, but it’s what she wants. Applied wood mullions, cut to fit. Run longer verts first, cut horizontals to fit. Cut those mullions 100’s of times, a 55 or so degree cut lays that long point nicely onto mull so as it planes out w/flat of existing mull. Can’t put together as one piece
