    Hi Naadelkooker. Welcome to MASA.

    Feel free to ask, it saves frustration and tears in the long run... Also, there is a wealth of information on this forum, just use the top of page google function. :)
    But no question is wasted, so ask!

    Edit: It do feels funny to spell your name as NaaDELkooker... Was that a typo or intended?

    K so the glass is going to be 5mm with the bottom pane @ 6mm.

    But how big should the hole for the overflow be and how far does it need to be from the edge of the glass!

    Also the brace at the bottom can i trim it back like in the pic or would it be an problem in that area?
