Badass. Stained glass always looks cool

My mother used to make stained glass when I was younger, always wondered why she stopped. It looked like fun, the melted sautering metal or however you call it

Thanks for sharing

My solder lines are not great or even good... but it's fine. It'll give me a chance to do some joinery with the frame.

I was thinking mortise and tenon joints and a groove w dado blades. Probably going to get a router cause ill need it eventually but am tempted to do the joinery with hand tools like this guy.

I was able to thin and smooth out the solder lines. They still aren’t very good but they’re much more tolerable.

This looks like a good way to make nice uniform tenons. https://www.finewoodworking.com/2011/11 ... peed-tenon

And I just put a new blade on my table saw.
