no previous part Part 1 of Stained Glass: "A How To" Series series Part 2: Practice cuts »

I appreciate that people showed interest in this blog. I have been wanting to do something like this for quite a while, but never put an effort towards it. In this series I am going to discuss Foiled stained glass, and the methods involved in the making of a lamp. I am not a professional by any means at stained glass, so if you have any input or suggestions it’s much appreciated. I am merely a hobbyist that is self taught. Here is the first video. Sorry that I am not an actor or good at being on camera.

Glad you are doing it, pro or not. You are a very talented craftsman. If you don’t believe me, ask anyone else on here ;-))

I am looking forward to this complete series. How many of us would like to incorporate a little color into some of our woodworking. Thanks.

I’ll be following along as well. My niece works with stained glass as a hobby and she has made some awesome windows mounted in her front door.
