How to Make a Glass Coffee Table
Making a glass coffee table is easier than you might think. With the right materials and tools, you’ll be able to whip one up in no time. Here are the steps to follow:
Step 1: Collect the Materials
- Two pieces of glass according to the size of your desired table.
- Four L-shape mounting brackets
- A hammer, nails and drill with drill bits
Step 2: Cut the Glass
Using a measuring tape and a permanent marker, measure the desired dimensions of your table onto one of the glass pieces, and use a glass cutter to cut it. Make sure to put on safety glasses during this step.
Step 3: Attach the Brackets
Mark the spots where the brackets are to be placed on the sides of the glass piece. Using a drill, bore the corresponding holes and place the brackets. Secure the brackets in place with nails, ensuring they are firmly attached
Step 4: Join the Pieces Together
Place the second glass piece on top of the mounted brackets. Make sure the edges are lined up and the surface is free of dust and dirt.
Step 5: Sealing
For additional stability, use a silicon glue to seal the edges between the two pieces of glass. Let the glue dry for twenty-four hours before moving on to the next step.
Step 6: Finishing
Now your glass coffee table is completed and ready to be used! To make it look even better, you can style it with a tablecloth or other decorations.
