I have been using a lot of Kokomo glass in my woodworking projects.
It is a pain to store the 8×14 inch sheets on a shelf. Each time you want to go through a select a piece for your latest project, you have to remove the glass sheets, put them on a table, go through all of them, then put them back onto the shelf.
At the Kokomo Glass factory in Indiana, they have wooden holding bins where the customers can easily flip through the sheets and select the piece they want.
I decided to make a similar design for my workshop. My unit is wall-mount versus floor-mount.
I had an extra piece of 5/8” particle board in my shop, so I used that on this project. I used Kreg coarse screws and yellow Titebond glue to hold it together. I attached it to my workshop wall with 2.5” torx drive screws.
The finished unit really works nicely. It is much quicker and less likely to break sheets of glass due to less handling.
It is probably safer also, since you are less likely to break the glass.
To see more details on how I designed and built this, see my web site.
