This demonstrates the size of some of the smallest pieces in the panel beside more
small pieces on the design. Believe it or not I think it was easier to get a good job
with 1/8" lead as opposed to foil that would be hard to get even and even more work.

When cutting the boarder, and not being able to grind because of the chipping, I will cut the
piece in to place. I cut the piece that fits in to the lead first than notch it where it has to
be cut. I than remove it and using a straight edge like the set square I line up the notches
and cut.

OPPs REDO - Just pushing a little too hard, with your fingers can cause breakage.
This window was not hammered together.

To get a piece to fit in to a more complex set of concave curves I place the glass over
the lead and mark with a felt pen. If this where opaque glass - the glass would be
placed under the glass and traces than only what looks like excess would be removed.

By using this wood #w-9 it prevents a slip up of the lead being held out by being too
long, keeps the fingers out of the viewing area and maintain a vertical lead.
