How To Attach A Glass Table Top to Wood

A piece of furniture that you want to place on top of a wood surface can make for a beautiful addition to your home. However, there are some pieces that just won’t look right if you don’t take the time to properly attach them. This article is about just that – how to attach a glass tabletop without any issues.

What You’ll Need

To attach a glass table top to wood, you’ll need the following supplies:

  1. Two hinged corner brackets
  2. One inch screws
  3. Tape measure
  4. Glass table top
  5. Wooden frame

Measure and mark the positions of the two hinged corner brackets on the wooden frame. Make sure that the brackets are level and square with each other.

Drill one inch screw into each bracket, slightly offset from the edge of the bracket.

Drive screws through both frames and into the table top. Be sure to tighten the screws evenly so that the table top is secure.

Place tape measure along edge of table top and line up screw holes on frames. Cut table around screw heads; remove screws.

Place glass table top over frames and install screws from bottom to top, matching screw lengths to those in step 2.

Step by Step Guide:

How to Attach a Glass Table Top to Wood
Step One: Measure the Wood

If you’re attaching a glass top to wood that’s not already pre-made, measure the width and height of the glass tabletop and subtract 1 inch from both measurements. This will ensure that the glass tabletop fits snugly against the edge of the wood.

Next, mark out a hole on the edge of the wood where you’ll be attaching the glass tabletop. Make sure to draw your hole accurately so that it’s centered on the edge of the wood.

Now use a drill bit that is slightly larger than the diameter of your screw (or if using screws, use screws that are slightly longer than the thickness of your tabletop). Drill through both wood and glass tabletop until screw is fully inserted.

Step Two: Cut the Wood

If you have a straight edge, you can use it to make the cuts for the glass tabletop. If you don’t have a straight edge, use a jigsaw or a circular saw to make the cuts. Make sure that your cuts are accurate so that the glass tabletop fits snugly into the groove in the wood.

Once you have made the cuts, use wood glue and a few screws to attach the glass tabletop to the wood. Be sure to leave enough room on either side of the glass so that you can screw it in place.

Step Three: Attach the Glass to the Wood

If you followed the directions exactly, your glass and wood table top are now securely attached. If there were any gaps or inconsistencies in the attachment process, use a wood filler or Epoxy to fill in the gaps and make sure that the surface is smooth.

Now your table is ready for all of your decorating needs!

Step Four: Add Some Glue and Scraping

If you’ve followed the steps so far, your table top is ready to attach to the frame. The first step is to glue the tabletop down to the frame.

You’ll need two pieces of wood that are about 1 inch wider than your tabletop and at least as deep.

Glue one of the boards to the front of the frame and the other to the back. Then use a wrench or screwdriver to tighten the screws that hold the tabletop in place. Scrape any excess glue off of both surfaces before moving on.

The next step is to attach the legs. Take one of the legs and place it over one of the holes on the bottom of the frame.

Make sure it’s lined up correctly and screw it in place with a screwdriver. Repeat with the other leg. You’ll now need to install your table top onto these legs.

Place it so that there’s a piece of wood between it and the frame, then use a wrench or screwdriver to tighten everything down. Finally, scrape any excess glue off of both surfaces before moving on.

Your table is now assembled! All you have left to do is add your fabric or paper TABLECLOTH and enjoy your new table!

Step Five: Voila!

If you followed all of the steps correctly, your glass table top should now be attached to the wood surface! Congratulations on a job well done!
