Stained Glass And Wood, for fun.....

Sometimes I like to make some stained glass lights. I liked making lights from when I was in my early twenties. My 'lil sis got me into stained glass. She did it for a while.
I love the medium. I love making lights. I love lights. Plain and simple.
Now I make them in a hybrid stained glass --wood, copper, thingamajig things
I take 6mm copper tubing, like the stuff that is used in air conditioners, and form it on to the wood.
Then I form a whole lot of other copper tubes and solder them together with a plumbing solder that is for copper and does not need flux.

Then I cut the glass and solder it in with copper foil and solder.
More to come.................... as we progress.............
