I did a super weird customized 72x22(??)x30, peninsula style. It looks fantastic as a room divider, and is set high up. But it was stupid of me to have it only 22 inches deep. I thought I wanted a slimmer profile, but an extra two inches would be nice.

You mean the silicone that looks like it is underneath the triangle from the top view actually is not?
Yessir- it’s just to fill in the upper-edge chamfer of the glass triangle: so it wouldn’t have a recessed area. They have to chamfer the entire panel of glass, you can’t just leave a small portion un-chamfered.

Without that silicon in the chamfer, would probably have salt creep in there and look weird.
