glass cutting near longmont?

I am really wanting to build a cube tank, and I want to do it custom dims. I was think 12x12x12, but the only place I know is lowes and I don't feel that their glass could hold up to that pressure. So do any of you know where I can get glass cut for super cheap?

Most glass shops that sell glass windows, etc... should be able to cut glass for a good price, as well as carry different types of glass, such as tempered, beveled, etc...

Here in the Denver area we have a few glass shops that sell any type of glass, as well as cut it to size for free or for a low price. Just to name a few places like Ken Caryle Glass, United Glass Service, JB's glass just to name a few....


I say go to yellowpages.com and do a search for "glass shop" in your area, and you should find some.

I've used hillcrest glass on 4th. They're free edge was surprisingly good. If I was to do a tank from them I'd get starphire, which I've verified they can get with a nice edge bevel and polish.

I'll look into that for sure, so do you guys think 6mm glass is thick enough to hold back the weight of the tank?
