Glass Cutting Board

Blue glass cutter, running plyers and shards of glass.

Every time I score and cut a piece of stained glass, I cut it on a plastic glass cutting board.  Most cutting boards are rectangle and come in various sizes.  They have a grid pattern that is lifted so that the pieces of glass fall down into the grid.  It makes it very convenient to cut the glass plus it is easy and safe to clean up those really small pieces.  The pictures above show the multi-colored shards of glass that I cut for one project.  When finished cutting I usually throw these shards away as they are too small to be of any use.
