Glass table tops are a fantastic way to protect your beautiful furniture from natural wear and tear. Glass can shield your wood surfaces from spills, condensation, scratches and dings. It provides a sheer, transparent covering to ensure that your wood pieces maintain their natural beauty and luster for many years to come. If there are items in your home that you would like to preserve, use glass since it is durable and reliable as a protective layer. Enjoy your children coloring and playing with paints on your grandmother’s mahogany table without stress or worry.
For a contemporary look we can also custom cut glass that will serve as a table top in its own right. Having a table that is see-through can allow small spaces to feel more open. Furthermore, this offers a modern look by providing a completely transparent, usable piece for daily use or decoration.

What are safety considerations for glass table tops?
Usually glass table tops are used to protect furniture in high traffic areas. Some of the more commonly protected pieces of furniture are items like coffee tables, office desks, dining room tables, or meeting room tables. In most cases a 1/4” glass is used over these wood surfaces and tempered glass is not recommended. If a glass top is desired for a pedestal table where there is not a solid surface for the glass to rest on then tempered glass is recommended.
