While we're biding our time I took care of a little project that has been lingering for over a year now.
About a year ago the mason who did the stone work on the stairs managed to knock over a stack of 2x4s, one of which went through our entry doors. The broken pane has lingered in its taped up state for various nonsensical reasons. I have no fear of working with glass - I have plenty of wavy glass stockpiled, I did glassblowing for years, used glass in metalworking projects, and have dabbled in stained glass work - it's really inconceivable that I was intimidated by this project. I think my main worry was braking the trim pieces that held the pane in place. That ended up being that hardest part, as being patient and working slowly isn't my strong suit.

Everything turned out beautifully though, and I even got the glass cut on the first try.
It's a good thing too, because I have a gallon of glazing compound that just came in the mail and 60 panes to cut and glaze (schoolhouse windows I'm looking at you)!
