Thank you for the kind words. In regards to the glass, I've installed it several ways.  For a "permanent" and much cleaner look a slot routed into the door frame with some silicone works quite well.  For a more "traditinal" look a rabbet is put on the frame with trim pieces holding the glass in place.  Glass is easily accessible in the event it needs replacement. 

Tempered glass is quite strong though.  Had a door standing up against my garage (not in the best angle) and as luck would have it...fell over.  I surely expected the glass was broken...but it didn't.  Large piece of Flemish glass about 6' tall and 3' wide...not a crack.

Thanks for the info.  Makes perfect sense.  Had no idea that tempered glass was used but makes sense now that you mention it.  Please keep sharing your creations!

Late night working on SEVEN doors...

What's the last one (white with glass) rails made out of?  I can just barely see the bottom behind the clamp and it almost looks like steel webbing.
