Default not exactly the best woodworking project

I took a break from my 30 days of woodworking to do some stained glass and also make a frame for the piece.

The project is 32"x50" in the copper foil method. There is a total of 506 pieces and I have close to 110 hours into the entire project. The wood is African Mahogany.

Nice, Shawn! You had me fooled for a minute, there - I thought you'd made three. Took me a while to realize that two were from the two sides of the window, and the other had light shining through it! Great job. It's one of the more complicated of those windows I've seen.

Very nice Shawn. I haven't done stained glass in 20 years, but I can see there are some pretty tough cuts in there.

I do not have any plans for the actual piece. It is more than likely going to end up at my sister's home. It was an old project that needed completion, wanted to test out my 1400, and I also need to space so I can start insulating and running electrical. Too many things going on in my little crazy house.

I have been building prototype boxes around the idea of doing rent-able art work. Build a few panels, back light them, then design a wooden box where the work can be easily removed but also still remain lockable without it being this obnoxious 6" box protruding from the wall.

I am tossing around the idea of creating a 501c and teaching kids glass, ceramics, find someone who can do metal, and woodworking and then having them sell their wares to pay for camp, college, or any education based en-devour.

I really just have too much sit down free time and not enough time in the shop to just do.

Very nice work AND very nice idea on creating an educational camp from your knowledge.

It's to the point where kids won't know anything until it comes out on XBox/Wii/PlayStation.

Some titles we need:

"Grand Theft Cooking: Asian Edition"
"World of Woodworking"
"Halo: How To Catch A Tan"
"Call of Dancing: Latin Ops"

Very impressive Shawn!

I don't see any straight lines inside that design...
how many diamond coated mandrels did you go through?

I have a wet belt sander.

I would guess I went through about 4 bits and still lots of life left on the belt.
