how much did the glass cost

It called for tempered glass, glass place said it has to be ordered and will take 2 – 3 weeks, so I went with my next option, safety glass ($12.00 dollars)

I built this project for several family members when the project came out in Wood. At that time (6 years ago?) the tempered glass cost me around $35 each. However, I have lots of extras! They probably did 4 or 5 cuts before they got me a straight piece! They couldn’t use the other pieces so they just gave them to me. I still have them in my shop. But I probably should just toss them, they are pretty useless without being flat. You can’t fit them into the dado.
On this project: Fine looking holder!

Thanks for all the comments. I got my glass at a local car glass shop, only thing with the safety glass, there is a strip on the edge (which is plastic) and the edges are sanded and not polished otherwise it worked well.

Great idea on the glass. It’s good looking and useful around the kitchen. Well done!
