[APD] Re: Aquatic-Plants Digest, Vol 23, Issue 31 - Message 11

Just ask the glass company to cut it to side and grind the edges slightly to get rid of some of the sharpness.  This should be fairfly cheap and I've done it lots of times.  However, if you asked to have the edges finished, or beveled, that really adds up the cost and it is usually several dollars or more per edge and that may be where your $55 price came from.

$55? Oy! 

Think "glass cutter" and get the 30x12. Or ask what the
local glass shop or auto-glass store what they would charge
to cut it for you. But really, $55 for a littel piece of
glass like that? It should only be a few bucks for 1/8" or
3/16" glass. It doesn't need to be tempered or heat
resistant boro-silicate glass, just ordinary glass.
