I figured the only way I can figure this out is by going through it a step at a time. So why not do it live! First, I have a box of stuff???

I also have a variety of frames to choose from!

 I chose this one, as the glass was still in as a size reference, and because it was fairly easy to get in and out of the frame. Yay!


And I've got my fancy glass marked!

 I've got my oil cutter and my sharpie

I've got my otha toolz

So I've got a piece of glass cut that's a liiittle bit smaller than the original piece of glass. I've decided to keep it simple and cut a pattern into a single piece rather than mixing colours at this point. I'm very rusty.

First cut went well. The oil cutter still works! It's not corroded or anything.

Second cut is on an angle! Oooo, fancy. It took me a while to learn how to do that, so I'M impressed.

 Cutting's done! Since the oil cutter leaves some residue on the edges, I've wiped them clean with a disposable rag. The spiders also noticed I haven't done this in a while, and built a little nest in the disposable rag tube. Even more of a comment on their part, it's been empty for some time.

Next, taping the edges with copper tape. This is the part for which I get a chair and put on an episode of Buffy. Check back later.

Yay tape! And this.. thing... with which you... flatten? the tape...

Bevel King? I've heard it called something else that I now forget.

Hey look! I don't like it. Maybe it'll look better once it's soldered. I'm doing that tomorrow. It's the scary part...
