400 dollars is my first quote for glass cutting….Thats 10 bucks a square foot.

Glass needs

Granted its a franchise (Mr. Go-Glass), but still there isnt much around here other than autoglass people.


Well a new quote is in from a local Screen and Glass shop…The prices are a little bit easier to swallow.

Mirror is 63.70
Door 30.55
sides 15.50 each

shelves – 60 each for 3/8ths or 32 each for 1/4.

May be worth talking to the autoglass shops. Had a buddy that worked at one for years, they would do mirrors and flat glass as well.

Mirror is expensive, but that sounds excessive. I’d check around.

Lowes has glass, (Are they open yet in your town) and usually Ace hardware, but I doubt if they have mirror.

Also try Charlie Brown Glass in Salisbury. We get out plexiglass and mirror from him for the toy workshop.
