Glass with wood frame railing - expansion and thickness
I had a mature walnut tree hit my house and deck, and it wiped out a couple sections of my railing.
I have a heavily wooded backyard, and was thinking about replacing with glass panels so I can see the backyard better. Can I mount glass in wood frames that I will make so it matches the rest of the railing? If so, how snug should the glass fit for expansion, etc?
Since wood will also swell when wet, what are your thoughts on how frame should be made? If I use six foot panels of tempered glass, what thickness should I use?
