Sled, The more you do this the better you will get at it. Screwing up is how we all learn. I like the way it looks so please post the new images. If you can PM me when you post so that I do not miss the post that would be great. Also try to keep it as a hobby since we all do much better work for our self.
I am very good with my hands since I was a developer/contractor for over 25 years. Built many homes, and small office buildings. I am a very good stain glass artist but I keep it as a hobby. Many have asked me to do work for them but I turn the work down since I love stain glass work so much that if I turned it into a business then I may lose interest in it. Don’t want that to happen.
