Very pretty. Just saw the tile glass the other day all different colors and wished I had something I could do with it. Can you provide and details how you completed this project? Any special tools to place tile into place?

Skellbell-

I laid the glass tiles just as one would doing any tile work. You do have to use a special mortar designed for glass tiles, which you can pick up in any big box stores. After I laid the tiles, I used sandless grout to fill the gaps. Since I only wanted to show full tiles, I had to make sure the dimension of the tabletop is just right for a full number of tiles in both directions. Other than that, it was quite simple. The substrate of the top was 1-inch thick plywood. Hope this helps.
