Glass Top Coffee Tables

Glass coffee tables aren’t generally made from glass alone; the glass part is supported either by hard plastic, wood or metal. The only part that has glass is the top of the table. This top is made from thick tampered glass. The table isn’t vulnerable to breaking as this type of glass is widely known for its toughness. In a case where the glass breaks, maybe due to contraction or being hit by a very hard object, it produces cube like pieces unlike the usual sharp shards from common glass.
