Halo 4 Stained Glass Construction - All pieces cut by SenatorMars Halo 4 Stained Glass Construction - All pieces cut by SenatorMars
This one comes in at 210 pieces at 40"x50" I've got all the pieces cut and now it's time to start foiling and leading everything.

I designed this myself. It took a long time.

It's hard to tell from the picture, but it looks like a lot of your work fits together almost perfectly when all the pieces are cut. Does this create any problems after everything gets foiled? I mean, is there enough gap to solder or did you just solder over the tops of the seems? Hope I'm making sense.

I ran a considerable amount of strong line between the pieces for reinforcement so I had to compensate for that in the design. And I know what you're asking about the space between the pieces. As far as I can tell, some people say it's an absolute necessity, and some will tell you that it's completely unnecessary and a waste of time. Since I ran so much reinforcement it was sort of a moot point, but from my experience and from asking around you don't need to leave spaces between pieces for the lead to run into when you foil something.

You picked some gorgeous glass! Your glass cutting is fantastic as well. My teacher says I'm good, but your pieces look just about perfect :aww:

Great work. I am curious, are you hand cutting all the pieces or do you use a saw? If so, what type?

I've never used a saw. I've gotten pretty good at scoring and breaking, and sometimes I need to clean the pieces up a little with a grinder, but I never really felt the need to use a saw.
