hello boy scout, got a first name we can call you?

I just installed some glass block on a pony wall for a shower using the Provantage system from Pittsburgh Corning. not sure if I really liked it. the problem is that the block wall had no rigidity, it wiggled - more than I liked. but I don't think glass block mortar would have made it any more stiffer. we ended up installing a bar across the top of the block and connected it to the opposite wall.

whatever method you choose, you'll need anchors and support like nathan suggested.
