Very nice, that is an asset to the hobby and will help guys that need letters to complete their signs.

Excellent work. I can easily break glass but that stuff is beyond me. This thread has brought some real veterans out of lurker mode too.

Bill, looks great! Not an easy task! Did you have to make molds for each side of the letter or let the glass slump down on one? Just curious, ok if you don’t answer.

There are several different molds involved depending on the font.
