About Our Custom Glass Table Top Covers

Table Cover

You'll want to use a glass table top cover when your main objective is to protect a table or other furniture from damage. If you have a beloved antique or a heavily-used hutch, a glass table cover will protect it from scratches, stains, water spots, and even heat.

Here's a few things you need to know about our custom glass table top covers:

  • You can fully customize your table top: glass thickness, type of glass (including gray, bronze, and frosted), tempering, edge types and corners.
  • We custom-cut your glass table top when you place your order, so we are able to guarantee the quality of your product.
  • We ship your glass table top to you, in most cases, in 5-7 business days.
  • Don't forget to order glass desk bumpers if you want to have a buffer between the furniture surface and the glass.

How to Order a Glass Table Cover

During your customization process, here's what you need to know to order a glass table cover.

Checklist for when glass sits directly on the surface of furniture:

  • Glass Thickness: 1/4" is the preferred thickness. 3/8" or 1/2"can be used for effect but make sure that the furniture can carry the weight.
  • Edge Type: flat polish is the preferred edge work. However, pencil polish or beveled polish can be used to give accent or a dramatic effect.
  • Glass Strength: Annealed glass is sufficient to protect the table but glass can always be tempered for added safety, especially if there are younger kids in the house.

How to Measure for a Glass Table Cover

It's easy to get the right fit. Just follow the directions below.

  1. Using a measuring tape, stretch the measuring tape straight across from one side to the other side of your table. For a round table top, this measurement is the diameter. For a square table top, this measurement is all you need – length and width. It is the width of a rectangular or square table top. Record the measurement.
  2. If your table is rectangular, next measure the length from edge-to-edge and record the measurement.
  3. The cutting tolerance is ⅛” for all of our glass, including glass table covers.

Glass Table Cover FAQs

Place the end of a measuring tape on the center of the table vertically. Stretch the measuring tape straight across to the opposite side. Use this measurement as the diameter and size for a round table top. Use this measurement as the size of a square table top or the width of a rectangular or square table top. Record the measurement.

Next, measure the length of a rectangular table top from edge-to-edge and record the measurement. Place the end of a measuring tape underneath the edge of the table top. Stretch the measuring tape up and read the number on the tape where the table top upper surface meets the measuring tape to determine the thickness of the table. If there's a hole for an umbrella, measure the diameter of the hole.

If you're looking to replace the table cover exactly, it's a good idea to look at the edge of the glass to determine the type of edge fits the table. A pencil edge is a flat, thin edge. A beveled edge drops off from the top portion to the bottom portion of the glass. A polished edge is thicker than a pencil edge with polished bright glass around the perimeter. A wavy edge has indentations around the perimeter. Write down the type of edge.


No. For protective glass table covers, we offer clear buttons to put between the glass and your table. This allows for extra spacing to keep it the cover from sticking and harming your table's finish. The soft texture won't scratch either the glass table cover or your table, and they're transparent so as not to detract from the look of your table.


Tempering a glass table top adds to its strength. Tempered glass is 5 to 7 times harder to break compared to regular annealed glass. Tempered glass is also regarded as safety glass because when it breaks, it shatters into small pebbles that don’t pose as much of a danger to you and your family.

In most instances, 1/2" inch thick glass tops are not tempered. This is due to the added strength from the thickness. However, 1/4" and 3/8" thick glass tops are mostly tempered for extra strength.

As a basic rule, tempering the glass does not change its appearance or weight. With that in mind, if you have kids at home or are just concerned with safety, we say, "when in doubt, temper your glass."


A glass table top is a piece of glass set upon a stand or pedestal to form the actual table surface. A glass table cover is a glass liner that actually lies on the surface of wood or marble table and protects the surface of the table. Glass table tops make an effective design statement when used for glass coffee tables, glass end tables, glass patio tables and glass dinning tables. Glass table covers can be used for coffee tables, antique dining tables, or desks.


Glass table covers are a wonderful way to protecting valuable or antique furniture without hiding its beauty. With a protective glass table cover, your wood, marble or metal table's surface is safe from spills, stains, dings and scratches. No need for placemats or tablecloths – you can put hot casserole dishes or cups of coffee on the table without worrying they'll harm your table's finish.

No waxing or polishing – glass table covers wipe clean so much easier than wood or marble finishes. With their transparent surface and custom fit, glass table covers won't detract from the impact of your table while they keep it clean and hygienic.


To make sure your new table covers' corners match your table, you'll need to measure the angle of the clipped corners. Line up the edge of a tape measure or ruler with the outermost edge of the angled edge (this is where the corner would be).
