    Tempered glass cannot be cut to size after the tempering process.

    Just beat on it until it gets angry loses its temper. Then it’s easy to cut!

    As stated….it would shatter. I would suggest using a laminated glass instead of plexi or newer composites.Laminated is not only safe but adds insulating properties. Can you cut laminated by hand?….yes but is painstaking….one glass surface has to be cut..then the opposite side exactly…..heat the vinyl and cut with a razor knife.

    Tempered glass cannot be cut…it will shatter. Tempered glass is precut, then annealed in a tempering oven. Don’t even try it..you will have a very big mess on your hands.
