So I'm in the middle of this rebuild of this stand up desk that I am finally getting around to. Now I tore off the old laminate, it was cracked so on, and so on. Now I was going to just put new laminate on it however, I sanded down the wood directly below and while I was rearranging my shop I placed some glass I had laying around on top of it. Looking at it I realized I wanted to put glass on it instead of laminate.... (Thought process incase anyone is interested.... No one? Okay moving on.)
What type of glass should I use for the desk. I know tempered glass is safer, however I also know it will break much easier. Plus, the glass wont be floating with nothing below it so its not like if it does break glass will go everywhere if I use normal glass. And I don't want to use plexiglass because I don't want to have to deal with scratches.
Can I go to Home Depot and get glass cut to my dimensions needed for the desk?
