Answer: 
Generally you don't want to try cutting this stuff. Most the official documents state that these blocks cannot be cut. This means that layout is critical before starting the project. There are some options as the blocks come in 12x12,8x8, 4x8 and 6x8 squares.
I haven't set my shower wall yet, but plan to build a "story pole" with marks every 8" on the wall so I can make sure that the wall is setting up

I haven't set my shower wall yet, but plan to build a "story pole" with marks every 8" on the wall so I can make sure that the wall is setting up and there is no "creep" as I go. I will have to allow for the tile/thinset thickness of the shower curb, and may need to do some drywall adjustments at the top of my shower before starting so that their are no gaps at the top.
I have a wet saw, so in theory I could try cutting one, but it might be a rather dangerous operation. I've cut glass tile (1/8 thick approx) with the wet saw no problem, that was for a marble shower with blue glass accents... this is a 4" thick piece, so might not be a nice scene if it were to crack and send jagged slivers out and about (face arms legs etc)... so I wouldn't want to try cutting these myself.
You might find someone at a glass shop willing to play with them. Read Less

Answer: 
We do not recommend cutting glass blocks. There is a slight vacuum created inside the glass blocks during manufacturing and they have a tendency to implode if cut or drilled. Also, if you are successful in cutting them, you've broken the seal and moisture will eventually create mold/mildew inside the block.

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by A fine product, but Glass blocks are only produced by a few companies and they are basically identical in quality. Home Depot's price is best and Pittsburgh-Corning is a good manufacturer. September 15, 2015
