Stained Glass Design and Manufacture - Stained Glass Restoration and Repairs - Stained Glass Instruction

Antique door transformation

So this is a personal project for a century old house in Nova Scotia that I’m restoring and renovating. I bought an old door to use between the new kitchen and what will be my workshop for the immediate future.

I re-did the stained glass in the lobby of a house in Westmount a few years back, and the client gave me the old ones. I am going to use them to replace the wood panels in the door.

They need to be stripped and cleaned, repaired, and then be adapted to fit into the openings of the door.

Because the opening for the door panels are longer than the stained glass panels, I have to design an adaptation to the existing pieces. This is the table layout where I’ve drawn the opening onto paper and marked where the existing panel will go. I've collected different glass samples around it to see what works, as well as some leads that will hold it together. I'll keep posting as I move along with the project. Feel free to contact me about the process, or if you'd like some hep with a similar project of your own.
