Round, oval or a combination of straight lines and curves can be bevelled to produce various shapes to compliment your application. (We are also able to bevel laminated glass ).
Clear bevel shapes are beveled glass in a variety of shapes and sizes. Shapes include diamonds, triangles, circles, half circles, oval, pentagons and corners. Bevels act as prisms in sunlight creating an interesting color diffraction which both highlights the glass work and provides a spectrum of colors which would ordinarily be absent in clear float glass.
Beveled glass or stock bevels are used in stained glass art and projects such as windows, transoms, cabinets, doors and more. Other uses are suncatchers and ornaments where multiple bevels and sometimes stained glass are copper-foiled and soldered together. Beveled glass and bevel ornaments are also great choices for glass etching projects.The bevel is obtained by holding the glass against a horizontal roughing wheel, sand and water also playing an important part in the operation. The bevel, like the surface, must also be polished. An emory wheel is used to remove the sand and clean the surface. Then after being held against a horizontal grindstone, a polishing wheel with pumice stone is used. To brighten the glass, a buffing wheel with rouge upon it is employed.
The most common bevel shapes are the V-shape bevel (also known as V groove, or plain bevel) and the compound V-bevel (also known as double V groove). The bevel angles in V shape can be carried out in mainly 30, 37.5, and 45 °. Bevel effects make shapes apart by making them look embossed, like a button, or even a pillow.
Bevel adds thickness and a rounded edge to shapes, but it doesn't work with every type of shape. A bevel cut is an angled cut in which the top of the wood is not perpendicular to the edges. Bevel cuts can often be made with a circular saw, table saw or a mitre saw. They will have an angled edge and are used for things such as the edge of a table to prevent sharp corners.
