Instructions for Building a Small Glass Coffee Table

A small glass coffee table is an ideal piece of furniture for any room of your house. It is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Building a small glass coffee table requires a few materials and basic tools. Here is how to build one.


  • Glass of desired size for tabletop (tempered glass recommended for safety)
  • 4 table legs
  • 4 plates (to be affixed to each leg)
  • 16 screws (enough to secure each plate to its respective leg)
  • Screwdriver
  • Power drill
  • Measuring tape
  • Pencil
  • Level (bubble level, preferably)


  1. Measure the side of the glass and cut according to requirement. Make sure that the fit is precise and secure.
  2. Fit the legs onto the glass. You should pre-drill the holes for the screws.

    • Tip: Place the glass upside down and fit the legs, instead of balancing it on the edges.

  3. Securely fit the plates to the legs. For this step, use the screws and a screwdriver.
  4. Attach the legs to each other. To ensure a perfect fit, use a level to keep the four legs aligned.

By following these instructions, you can easily build your own small glass coffee table in no time. Make sure to practice safety measures when dealing with tools, and use safety glasses when cutting the glass.
