This pattern is in this book..........
I bought the bevels and textured clear glass at The Glass House in Decatur, Illinois.
I used the morton system to cut a long rectangle, then used the paper pattern to mark the diagonal cuts. You are supposed to be able to cut the angle on the Morton system, but it was not obvious how to do it.........and I did not want to take the time to Google it and figure it out.
I also used the Morton system to cut the 6 rectangles for the sides. This system lets you quickly cut the pieces to both lengths.
You use black electrician's tape on the diamond bevel pieces while they are laying flat on the board, then lift up all the pieces to make the dome...........as is typical in many multi-sided stained glass tops.
Then you tack in the lower glass triangles, then solder the whole assemble inside and out.
You just make 2 solder blobs or dollups, and these serve as the lid handles. Pretty neat idea !
Since the chain and some of the tube hinge is brass, it makes sense to use copper vs black patina..............Black won't work on the brass colored parts.
This was a fun one to build. I am getting better at installing the tube and shaft style hinges................but I still struggle with soldering the chain. I like the textured clear glass.
