I'm installing glass block panels (purchased at a window store) in my
basement and I have all the windows done, except for a smaller window.
I need to make a smaller panel 24x28 and was wondering if anyone knew
where to find some instructions, or could explain the steps to make a
"Mortarless" panel? I've searched google, and kind find anything.
Help is much appreciated.
Not the best DIY project. I took a night class in bricklaying at a
local tech school and even with that, I have a hard time getting a
good looking panel. Was the price so high from the window store that
you don't want to buy one more? My local glass block company charges
$5 / block to make a panel, making it much easier for me to write a
check than "learn a trade".
Also, those mortarless panels often have tighter spacing than
standard, which might give you trouble.

I had a friend that ordered a number of glass block panels from a
window store. As he was putting them in, he stood one up in his
driveway, turned around to do something else and heard a loud thump.
When he looked back, he saw that his nice new panel was now a just a
bunch of individual glass blocks.
He did a pretty good job of putting it back together, although it
didn't match the professional one exactly.
