To Make a Laminated Glass Table, you have to Use a measuring tape to determine the ideal dimensions for your laminated glass table. You need to Measure the length and width of the space where you intend to place your table or use an existing table as a template. After that, cut two pieces of two-by-four hardwood to a length four inches less than the measurement you determined with using a circular saw. You must cut two more pieces of two-by-four hardwood to the table’s width, minus eight inches. Then, arrange the four pieces of hardwood in a rectangular shape.
You should stand the boards upright on their longest narrow edges. You can Sandwich the shorter boards between the ends of the longer boards. You have to drive 3-inch wood screws through the longer boards into the thickness of the shorter ones in order to secure the frame. Next, Use the circular saw to cut four 4-by-4-inch hardwood posts to the desired height of your table. You need to Use an existing table as a reference in deciding the height for your new table.
Forth, lay the rectangular hardwood frame flat on the ground. You must stand one of the 4-by-4-inch table legs upright in each of the interior corners. After that, drive 3-inch wood screws through the hardwood frame into the table legs to secure them. For added stability, you should drive 3-inch wood screws through the inside edges of the legs into the interior of the wooden frame. Then, Cut a sheet of 1/2-inch plywood to the length and width dimensions of the hardwood frame.
You can Lay the plywood flat on top of the frame and secure it in place with driving nails from a nail gun down through the plywood into the frame along all four sides. Next, Paint or stain your completed table frame to match the existing decor in your room. To make the plywood top of the table frame less noticeable beneath the glass, you have to paint it white. Forth, lay your sheet of laminated glass flat on the floor. You need to flip the table frame upside down on top of it.
You must adjust the glass tabletop so that when the table is right side up, the glass will be centered over the frame. You should overhang it by about two inches on all four sides. After that, Pre-drill holes through the bottom of the plywood into the underside of the laminated glass tabletop using masonry bit. You can Drill one hole in each corner of the tabletop. You have to insert masonry screws into the pre-drilled holes.
You need to tighten them by hand using a screwdriver to secure the tabletop. You must have someone help you right the table while the tabletop has been attached.
