I appreciate your comment, as while I’d read concerns about moisture getting trapped between the wood and glass, I hadn’t considered that the moisture could at some point turn to mold. That makes me feel like using the glass spacers is a good idea as we do have humid summers where we live. I move my glass once a month, both to clear crumbs out and to make sure the plastic spacers I’m using between the tabletop and the glass do not stick to the table’s finish long-term. I don’t take the glass off completely (it’s heavy and took both my husband and I to carry in when we brought the piece of glass home.) What I do is move it about halfway to one side, clean underneath the glass and the top of the table itself, then shift the glass to the other side and repeat. In order to lift the glass enough to slide it, I use a nylon cooking spatula to separate the glass from the spacers and tabletop. This is also how I lift it to get the spacers back in once I’m done cleaning it. Once the glass is able to move, I slide it to one side, like in the photo above. I’m able to do this alone, but I’m careful to only slide it as far as it can rest without the glass tipping over the edge and falling. Then, I just use Windex to clean the bottom surface of the glass that’s overhanging the side of the table. Then, I’ll go to the side of the wood that’s exposed and wipe that down as well. Once that’s done, I slide the entire glass in the opposite direction so it’s overhanging the right side of the table — then I clean under the glass and the opposite side of the wood tabletop. With a round table, I imagine this will be more difficult as it will be hard to clean the actual center of the table with this method. If you have another person who can help you support the glass, you could slide yours the same way and make sure the overhanging end is supported while you clean under the glass and the tabletop itself. Once that’s done, if you want to add spacers between the glass and the wood, you can find them on Amazon.

Patty Shaver, I just read through this entire comment section to see if I could find an answer to your same exact question! It doesn’t look like the authors table opens for a leaf. We are considering getting 2 pieces for our table top and a third piece for our leaf. The leaf is self storing, but folds in half so we would have to store the glass for the leaf under the bed. A friend of mine did this for her table, except the glass is able to rest on her self storing leaf. Now that I think about it, her table is quite a bit smaller than ours and I wonder if storing the glass cover for the leaf would be difficult and prone to breaking? Can you see a con in having the glass in pieces? Also, the corners of our table are not squared, but rather curved down. Hard to explain. But i wonder if it would be a problem for the corners of the glass to extend over the corner of the wood? One last question: what is annealed glass?

I hope i can find some help here. I have a round dining table with glass layer on top, cut to size. Over the years, moisture seeped in and guess what, moulds have grown on the table in spaces I can’t dream of reaching if I do not move the glass sheet. And it’s too heavy for me to move the glass sheet, not to mention i could not even find a grip to do it since the glass sheet is cut right to size for the table. Has someone done this before – discover an ingenious way of removing the glass sheet?? My advice for people who are thinking of covering their tables with glass sheet is that please make sure there is a simple way to lift it and clean the table, if there is a need.

I am very late to this discussion, but… I have a gorgeous, very large mahogany dining table that I decided to protect with a glass top. I did not use spacers. Major mistake. Any time anyone spills a liquid near the edge of the table, it instantly wicks underneath the glass – and there is no way to remove it or dry it up. And sometimes it moves under the glass further across the table top. Ultimately, it removes the finish. After a year, I had them come to put spacers under the glass. They only lift the top by a fraction – so I’m very worried the problem will continue.

Glass tabletops are used in a number of different ways, but the most popular is to use the glass to protect the surface of a table, desk, or a coffee table. When used as a cover on a wood surface, normally a thinner glass such as 1/4″ is used. The edges of the glass would normally be polished to smooth them out and avoid the possibility of injury from the sharp edges. When glass is used as a wood surface cover there is no need for tempering the glass.
