cabinet door glass


I am a little curious, what type of glass is recommended in a cabinet door.

The reason I ask, is that I have an old old c1915 Bungalow that I am in process of building cabinets for. I'm planning on making glass doors for several of the cabinets, but I'd really like things to look as if they could have been there a long time. Since I have several old windows in my house that are needing glass replaced due to cracks and such, I have been thinking maybe I would use that glass in some of the cabinets to get that old look.

I really like the waviness to the old glass, but it suddenly hit me, is this safe? I'm guess the glass in the old windows isn't tempered or it would have shattered into millions of pieces vs. cracking. I'm guessing tempered glass is what one wants in a cabinet, am I correct?

Not sure yet, I haven't actually pulled any of it out of the windows as of yet. I may start with the larger windows and see if I can get any of it to work for the smaller windows.

Any suggestions, if that doesn't work?
