Hello! I've been away for quite awhile and am starting to get back to glassing.... I have acquired several old wooden Windows that I would like to use as frames for my panels. They won't be installed as actual Windows in a house though. What is the procedure for installing the panel into the window, please?

Thank you in advance!

You can glaze a panel into a wooden frame, in the same manner, as you would a piece of sheet glass.


Use glaziers points to secure it and putty or caulk over the perimeter. You can also back bed with a bead of silicone to assure a secure hold, just make sure the panel fits before laying down the bead.
