I have. And my experience is that for ME, scratch built glass bodies are more difficult and more time consuming than steel bodies. That's not to say steel is preferable for ALL builders. It's just a matter of personal skills, abilities, and comfort levels. Some do better working with glass. Some prefer steel.

BTW, I'd love to see a few journals of complete scratch builds using the glass process you outlined in your post (or any process for that matter). I think it would be quite helpful for others who would like to tackle this type of project.
