Laying the glass pieces on the pattern.  Horseshoe nails are used to keep the pieces in position until the lead came is soldered together.



The glass grinder is behind the splash guard.


Rubbing alcohol is used to clean the glass.


The soldering iron is used to melt the solder and the lead came together.




Solder flux is used to clean the oxidization from the lead came so the solder will flow easier.
