Listed below are just a few of the many shapes you have to select from for your glass needs:
If the shape you need is not Listed, we can probably still do it for you. To verify that we can cut the shape you desire we will need a drawing or diagram of the shape. A pattern may also be required before we can cut the glass for you. For more information on your specific needs please .
We offer a wide variety of edgework for you to choose from. The most common type of edgework is the Pencil Polished edge in a Satin finish. Pencil Polished edges are also available in a clear finish. We also offer Flat Polished edges in both Satin and Clear as well as Ogee and Mitered edges in a Clear finish only. Beveled edges can also be applied to any of these edge finishes. See the Beveling section below for bevel sizes available.
The beveling of glass or mirror edges creates a very elegant look and is used often on table tops, vanity mirrors and wall mirrors. The beveling process uses diamond grinding wheels to remove a portion of the glass edge and then uses felt wheels and polishing compound to bring the edge to a shiny clear finish once again. The finished look is beautiful and can really enhance the overall appearance of any project that uses glass or mirror.
To accommodate for the many applications of glass, we offer the following types of fabrication:
- Drilled Holes; 1/8"& up.
- Finger Pulls
- Plate Grooves
Every effort is made to hold your glass to the size ordered. An additional charge will be added to orders requesting "hold to exact size".
