why would they be so expensive?? well i saw a thread somewhere in here of a guy making on with a glass front and silicon sealed wooden walls, you could look for that.
But was it a bowfront? And where did he get the glass?

As a referrence I needed 2 custom pieces of glass. Both were 5 3/4" x 12". Not very large. Both were to be tempered and made of 1/8" pane glass. $32 each is what it cost me. Just think of how much it would cost to get someone to PERFECTLY bend a large piece of glass to your circle bottom. BTW any idea of how much a "large circle" of glass would cost? Better yet, where are you just going to walk in and ask for a 4' diameter piece of 1/4" or 3/8" glass that you can simply go home and cut into a cross and use one quarter of it???? I work in construction adn can tell you that those 2 pieces will limit you to no end. Also any idea where you will get rim bands??
