@Debra K. We usually recommend silicone to hold the glass into the wood frame. The advantage is that silicone doesn t totally harden so it allows for a little movement between the wood and the metal came. We use dots of the silicone, instead of using a continuous bead, to hold the glass in. That way it is easier to remove down the road in case you have to for some reason.
