How to Make a Glass Top Display Coffee Table
A glass top display coffee table is a sophisticated and elegant piece of furniture that can enhance the look of any living room. It can provide a great spot to display your favorite collectibles or favorite photos. Making one at home can take a few days, but it is a relatively simple project if you are experienced with woodworking.
What you Need
- An oak plywood sheet
- Some building blocks
- Screws and glue
- Glass sheet for the display area
- Belt sander
- Measuring tape
Step 1: Measure and Cut
Take the oak plywood sheet and use the measuring tape to measure the size of the display area and mark it. Use the saw to cut out the shape.
Step 2: Sand
To create a smooth, level surface, use the belt sander to sand the plywood piece until it is evenly smoothed.
Step 3: Attach the Blocks
Attach the blocks along the edge of the plywood with screws and glue. This will create the frame for the table. Make sure they are securely attached and that they are evenly spaced.
Step 4: Attach the Glass
Place the glass sheet over the blocks, and use clamps to hold it in place. Then, use screws to secure the glass to the blocks. This will create the display area.
Step 5: Finishing Touches
To finish the coffee table, you can apply some stain to the wood and polish the glass. This will create a beautiful and durable coffee table that you can be proud of.
