Rick, the glass is tempered for safety and it cost $25.00 US and
a tube of clear sealer at $2.40 US.
It is easy job, I first took the inside trim off 16 screws and measure
the glass and had to order it ( two days ) because the glass factory is about 10 miles from my house. I went through a regular glass shop to get it. It is nice to sit at the table and look out the window and also the safety to see who may be at your door at night.
Thanks...I'm gonna give that serious thought.

Phil, the only thing that scares me about using the real wood for the molding is that it is not nearly as flexible as the stuff that I used.(Take heart, Charles, this stuff isn't real wood) I had this fear of it popping loose as I bounced down the road. As far as the color, I actually was going to use the white, but the wood trim looked better with the vinyl slate, carpet and cabinet doors. I used a moss green carpet on the elevated areas, so it just seemed to tie it together better.

This stuff is so fleixble, I was able to use the white laths to trim out the wood shelves that I made for the closet. I tried your low oven trick that you used on the PVC, but it didn't work. What I ended up doing was putting it on the straight edge then using a hair dryer to mold it into place.

Real wood doors. Yea, I know what you mean. That's a maybe someday for me, but what I have works just fine for now...;)

Thanks for all your great ideas. Even the ones that I'm not able to use, helps me figure out a slight diviation that works.
