I have made 6 9×9 panels that I want to hang in a wooden door side-light which opens. I don’t want to glue or fuse anything that will show in the glass panel so I thought I would cut a groove into the edge so I could wrap it with wire. This is where I get wishy-washy about the best way to wrap and hang them so I would like some suggestions for the hanging process. This side-light opens so the panels will have to be firmly fixed to the door.February 7, 2011 at 9:06 pm #11715JolindaParticipant
I see that you posted this question a long time ago, and I don’t see any replies (which just “got to me”) Perhaps one reason is that it’s very hard to imagine what it is you are trying to do, and I know that putting three dimentional things into words is a whole skill set in itself! But if I do understand correctly, you are trying to stack six 9×9″ panels on top of each other to form a sidelight in an existing wooden door side-light, which opens.
I can’t imagine the wire wrapping beig successful, for many reasons…but then I’ve had sure-fire projects turn into compete disasters and things that were a stretch work out wonderfully. I personally would be more inclinded to install these up against one solid clear glass panel with UV or silicon glue, and then mount that one solid piece with ?? 1/4″ round wooded molding, stained to match? I’m not clear however if there’s a groove in the wooden frame to allow for this. But wire wrapping such large and heavy pieces sounds to me like recipe for disaster. But hey, make me wrong…I do all the time!

That is also what I understand on his/her description. Its really hard to put it that way but it can be achieved freely once you know the technique on how to put it that way. I would suggest to add up something on it like window blinds perhaps. What do you think?July 17, 2013 at 3:06 pm #11717SuzanneParticipant
I ended up hanging the panels with clear silicone and they have lasted thru all kinds of weather for 2 years now. Thanks for all the suggestions.
