Kev reckons this is the simplest project of all time – three pieces of glass glued together to make a stylish, durable coffee table.

Step 1: Buy your glass from your local glass supplier. There are several styles of edges available – such as bevels, pencil rounds, and square polished. The only thing to remember is that the edges that join must be square.

Step 2: Make a jig to hold the legs upright for assembly. You can use scrap material, but it must hold the legs firmly.

Step 3: Clean up the joining surfaces with acetone, then mask around the tops of the legs, and the underside of the top with tape. You’ll need to carefully and accurately align the top before you mask it.

Step 4: Mix the Araldite Ultra Clear, spread onto both surfaces, and press them together. You’ll need to work quickly, as the working time for this glue is only a few minutes. Mix more than you need because there won’t be time to mix more if you run out part way.
Ultra Clear is ideal because it dries so clear that you won’t see it. It also bonds glass very well. Carefully scrape excess glue off, remove the masking tape and clean up with acetone.

Step 5: Wait until the glue has fully cured (16 hours) before cleaning with glass cleaner, moving it to the lounge room and loading it with coffee and cakes.
