Curved Window

Another project has landed on my bench. A person on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula is restoring an old house in which there are some curved windows. He has had the curved window frame made and has asked me to bend some glass to fit the window, rather than just put in flat pieces of glass and fill the gaps with putty.

The curve is not very great as you can see from the curve at the top of the card template, about 7mm across the pane of about 235mm. It is not much, but it will reflect the light in a totally different way than flat pieces of glass would. I am going to attempt to bend long strips of glass so they will have the same curve and then cut them to size.
