The Glass was a bit of a problem (cut wrong and delays) but it's finally done and delivered. This is pretty much what I envisioned for this project.

The shelves are 1/4" glass with polished edges and there are 5 total. The doors are also 1/4" glass with polish edges and no frame. The front glass is a double-strengh 1/8" sheet and the back will unscrew if the front glass needs to be replaced.

All in all, this turned out pretty good.

Here's its construction story...

Came out very nice Tommy.
What type of hinges did you use for the glass?
My brother has a set of shelves where he wants to hang a glass door, but can't find any hinges substantial enough. His opening is about 60" x 30"

The Glass Hardware was purchased from Rockler. They have those pictured and taller ones as well. I have seen them at HD, but they're at least twice the price. They have the sleeves (those gold things at the corners) and the magnetic catch.

I don't remember the number, but it's under the hinges or specialty hinges IIRC.
