First time I have heard from a Borrower on here - living in a dollhouse I guess, with 1-1/2 x 2-1/2 inch windows ;) - I am guessing you meant feet, not inches.

I presume this is single pane - if not, then you are better off having a glass replacement company do it for you, as it is easy to mangle the seal installing it, which destroys the insulating properties and causes vapor condensation between the panes.

Best if you can take the window unit in (if a removeable window) o take in with you so they can measure and fit the peiece, but if you measure carefully you should be OK- remember to leave glazing clearance around the glass - you do NOT want a tight fit to the wood because swelling wood will break the glass, and you need room all around for the glazing to provide a continuous seal around the window.

You want a Glass Repair/Replacement shop - any local glass shop that does house windows, like a Speedy Glass for instance, should be able to cut this for you. Check a source like this, or preferably local building code,

to see if the application you are putting it in requires safety glass rather than regular glass.
