For years we have had this 3/8” piece of glass that my wife has had, saving it for the one day that it would be useful.

Well, she found the day. After taking a look at a wire shelf that she had been using on the table to store condiments and such, I figured I could build a frame to hold the glass pane.

So I built a prototype, which is what is being used now. I plan on making the final out of ash, but the p/t work really gave me some insight into changes needed in the original plan for added stability. Meanwhile, I have a little time, as she’s very happy with the prototype.

All out of yellow pine and scraps, except for the bottom piece of the back frame, which is 3/4” birch plywood. Miller dowels for the joinery of the side frames.

Comments/suggestions are always welcome.

Love this! At first glance I thought this was a coffee table sitting on a hardwood floor. So the glass is removable, presumably for cleaning? I like that it comes out. Thanks for sharing.

This is a nice idea, we’ll done, and very functional!
