JJ - if you need some glass working tips, try to contact @Smallpatch.  I don't think 'patch does any glass, but Mrs. 'patch does, and beautiful work at that.  It may be a technique issue, or it may be that you just need another 20 years of practice:)

I have a glass grinder with a 3/4 inch diameter but cleaning up a straight edge is hard to keep smooth.

I hear you.  The man who taught me was an engineer and was very meticulous fitting the glass.  Do you mark the glass with a sharpie?  Then if you cut the line, that should leave enough for grinding to a good fit, since the tracing was outside the pattern.  Sometimes I fit it so tight that there isn't room for the copper foil!

 

Another long time stained glass hobbyist didn't seem to worry about really close fits, since the solder filled the gaps anyway.

 

Hopefully your first project has few pieces and not many small ones.
