Cutting the Glass

Last week I picked up a batch of glass which I ordered from America. Turns out European style 8×10″ is not the same as the US 8×10″ size. Better said, Europeans commonly misuse the term 8×10″ because European cameras are 18×24 cm and not 20×25 cm which 8×10″ officially is. So, I had myself a batch which was too big for my back and went on a search for a decent setup to cut glass. Several options like a glass cutter which is also used to cut tiles. That didn’t work properly and I ended up with  a decent knife especially for glass to do the job. Really great as it works fantastic and is very easy to deal with! My boyfriend was kind enough to build me a model so the cutting to the wanted size is a piece of cake now.
