mtenterprises – I’ve tried scoring the sides and then corner to corner. The glass will still radiate fractures at the corners. Thats why I’m going to try drilling at the corners before scoring. I checked with a local glass shop and they said this should work fine. If not they can do it for a reasonable price. I just haven’t had the time to try it out yet so I don’t know for sure if it will work for me.

FreshSawDust – I thought about using one of those, however they don’t have the look that glass does. They have that plastic look that real glass just doesn’t have. If I was making them for retail I probably would use one of them just for time savings and cost, but thanks for the suggestion.

BradB – Nobodys suggesting cutting glass with a scrollsaw. If you read the posts, it was suggested to use lexan or plexiglass as an alteranative to glass and cut with a scrollsaw. This CAN be done.

-- Tom Finnigan - Measures? We don't need no stinking measures! - Hmm, maybe thats why my project pieces don't fit.
