    So today I ran across two panels of 3/8 glass in perfect condition. I am thinking I can make a great frag tank. What do u think

    If it is not tempered then yea that sounds great. If it was from a sliding glass door then it might be tempered and you cannot cut it. Hopefully it's not tempered.

    3d glasses/ polarized glasses and a laptop work to find out if its tempered.

    cool project if it works.

    ... is it from a door? I would imagine it is tempered if so. also, it looks kinda dark, maybe thats just the picture?
