Hubby had to change the glass in a window the other day because it was damaged. The window is round and has two pieces of glass that are semi circular, with a bar across the middle:

Interesting. I'm going to try replacing a big pane (>1.3metres tall) in a sash window tomorrow, if it's not raining/damp with fog.

Anyone else with DIY projects to share?

Sorry it was ear-ache, wasn't it?

I now have several new panes to fix (the new pain, not ear this time!-)
