    Make a 4 tier frame for the glass and use glass paint to make design or just colour and use in garden as a feature..........

    Use them as shelves just as you would wooden ones. I believe they are what's called tempered glass. They aren't as easily broken as regular glass shelves.

    Put the panel's together using HVAC or duck tape, 2 panels per side & make a mini greenhouse terrarium to go around some small potted plants.

    If all wide edges are on bottom & angled edges put together, & 2 straight sides together sort of in pattern shown on your paper, the configuration will be a large base & smaller top creating the terrarium effect.

    I couldn't read the measurements given & was thinking in terms of inches. However I still envision something outside in a greenhouse maybe as a carport or house side extension, sun room, or maybe a gazebo for a hot tub.

    They remind me of what the glass looked like in a dome skylight in a home a friend of ours built in AZ. Did the glass by any chance come from a skylight dome?

    I couldn't read the dimensions of the glass in the paper. Thank you for the additional info. With that, I still envision them in a greenhouse or sunroom perhaps as an addition to a side/sideroom, porch, carport or something along those lines.

    As in a stand-alone structure, maybe a gazebo for a hot tub. In frame on corners or sides as wind block, OR even as a skylight or sunroof on the gazebo. Use them inverted with each other to make Windows in a room extension.

    The geometric cut of the pieces remind me a lot of a friend who built a home with a dome skylight in AZ. Could these pieces of glass perhaps have been used for that at some point in time? Their thickness & being tempered would also lend to being used in that manner.

    If used in a skylight, could use all in a single dome light or put 2 together to make rectangular shape for 4 lights, or 4 pieces to become 2 lights. If in dome shape, fill in center with additional glass or some other construction material.

    These suggestions are what I come up with.

      Thank you. Actually it was used in the middle of the house with an opening in the centre as an inverted V but as the measurements were not right, the placements were not right and we had to remove them and put tiles.

    Ive studied the measurements a little more & it seems there are 3 pairs of 2 identical tiles with same dimensions. Is this is correct, then using them one inverted to the other is a partner of same measurements would create a close facsimile to a square or rectangle. Perhaps using them in pairs as hanging panels with a stained glass type design on them such that one design per 2 panels could be hung close together making that appear similar to a picture. These would be pretty in between porch, gazebo, carport, or an outdoor type frame for relaxing in a swing, around a table with chairs, or entertaining. They would also provide an element of privacy if needed.

    Being heavy, you would need each panel in a frame of some sort with strong chain for hanging but the vision I have in my head would actually be a nice & a pretty feature.

    I hope this might give you some ideas. Hey, I'm trying.
