Does anyone know what to use to support an all glass top on a wooden and
frame? I'm thinking the weight of the glass will keep it in place so maybe
clear mushroom suction cups or silicon like disks. Haven't been able to find
anyone that sells the disks.
Depends on the size of the glass.
Typically, glass is supported around the edges using mole skin rings
the size of maybe a dime to provide point support.
Depending on size of glass, intermediate support points may be req'd.
Make sure you only have point, not line, of support otherwise cracking
along line of support is a possibility.
Trap glass around edges with a rabbit cut into wood frame.
Gravity will keep glass in place if properly trapped.
Talk to a glass house to get proper design skinny.
I think it depends on how much of the table surface is supported by the
frame and what parts of it are being supported. I've got some dark glass
shelving that is being supported by metal brackets that I lined with dark
brown suede leather. The glass doesn't move anywhere and hasn't for the last
10 years. It's a simple, easy solution that so far, has worked very well for
You answered your own question...."on a wooden and (?)
frame?" Depending on the design of your frame, you could
use cabinet door "bumpers", which are available in sizes
from 1/4" and up, square, round, strip shapes, in vinyl,
felt, rubber, Teflon, etc., if you are talking about the
interface transition between glass and wood.
From your description I could not visualize what this item
looks like or I could be more specific. regards, Joe.
