Some of you are wondering about the next steps to assemble and finish your fireplace screen, once you have completed the stained glass panels.
Here are some tips:
To assemble a fireplace screen we’ve found that 3/4″ u-flat zinc framing gives the support needed. To attach the sides to the center panel we use solid brass “piano” hinges and cut them to the length needed. This gives a constant hinge from top to bottom. Most of these solid brass hinges come with a protective coating that should be easily removed with medium grade steel wool before soldering.
Let us know how you are creating your fireplace screen and what works for you.
We love to see photos of your finished projects.
