How to Make a Glass Coffee Table
Before you start, it’s important to have the materials you need for the project. Here are the essentials to make a glass coffee table:
- Glass table top
- Wooden frame
- Protective padding
Assemble the Frame
Locate the corner cuts of the frame you’re using for your glass coffee table. Use the screws to attach the corner cuts together. Make sure the frame is stable and secure. Use the clamps to hold the frame together if needed.
Use the ruler and measure the opening in the frame to make sure it’s the same size as your glass table top.
Attach the Glass Table Top
Place the protective padding around the edges of the frame. This is important to prevent the glass from breaking. Place the glass top on top of the frame, making sure it’s centered in the opening.
Secure the glass top to the frame using screws. Make sure the screws are long enough to go through the padding and into the frame. Take care not to over tighten the screws.
Drill Pilot Holes
Using a drill, create two pilot holes in each corner of the frame. This is to make sure the screws hold the glass top secure and won’t come loose over time.
Secure the Frame
Place the frame on the ground and use the screws to drill the pilot holes. Make sure each screw is tight and secure. Once the frame is secured, lift the glass top and remove any remaining padding.
Test the Table
You have now successfully created a glass coffee table. Once you are satisfied with the table, use it to entertain guests and enjoy a cup of coffee in style.
Good luck and happy building!
