Was wondering what people thought might be the best way to laminate plate glass strips together to make a block-o-glass. I will be sanding the edges with a angle grinder fitted with a flap disc, so a flexible glue would not be great. Yes I know probably a belt sander would give me a flatter edge, but I am wanting a mottled sort of look. Anyway, silicon is out, as it is not good for sanding Epoxy might be the way, but I find it gets gummy under high heat friction sanding. Gorilla glue maybe or is there some magic yet cost effective glue out there. It will be a block about 2.5 feet by 2.5 feet with a thickness of about 3 inches. It will held in a frame with continuous supports around the bottom and sides with the top 1 inch exposed, so it will not have to hold its own weight. Double sided tape could conceivably be used, but I am trying to make it somewhat water resistant. It doesn't have to be clear, but it does have to allow some light transmission. Enough caveats on it?
