Here are few links that can assist you in making a glass marimba out of common window glass or stained glass.
For stained glass keys, one merely fuses two layers of stained glass together in a kiln and then tune.
Keys are made from 1/4" thick glass. Box resonators from 1/8" thick glass.

For mallets, drill a 1" bouncy ball for a 3/16 or 1/4 inch dowel around 12-14"' long.
