Understanding Glass Edgeworks Options

The smooth, sleek finish that glass can provide on any given surface makes it the perfect addition to any tabletop furniture, not only to enhance the look of it, but to protect the surface as well. Instead of worrying about scratching up your coffee table, you can have that peace of mind knowing that maintenance is easy and worry-free with the addition of glass. And whether you’re building a table from scratch, or you’ve found that perfect piece from the store, M&T Glass can create a customized glass tabletop to add that perfect finishing touch.

In addition to glass tops, we provide customized edgework that offers a variety of finishes along the edge of the glass to finish your furniture off perfectly.

If you’re in need of a glass tabletop, read on to learn about the glass edgework styles that we offer.

Flat Polish

Flat Polish edgework can be applied to a wide range of shapes and is the common industry standard. This is available for glass thicknesses from 3mm to 19mm.

Pencil Polish

Pencil Polish is primarily designed for round and oval shapes. It can however, be applied to a variety of other shapes. You can talk to one of your glass technicians for more information. This is available for glass thicknesses from 3mm to 19mm.


Bevel can be applied to oval and circular shaped surfaces, in addition to others. This type of edgework is the most popular among our customers since it gives a sleek and unique finish to the surface. This is available for glass (5 to 19mm) and mirrors (3mm to 5mm) according to certain bevel widths: ½”, ¾”, 1”, 1 ¼”, and 1 ½”.

45 Degree Miter

The 45-degree Miter is similar to the bevel edge but a little shorter in length. It’s also a popular one for homeowners. This is available only in straight and angular cuts, for glass and mirror both 5mm to 19mm.

Bull Nose

The Bull Nose provides a more circular edge, similar to the pencil polish. This is available for both angular (3 & 5mm) and round (3,5 & 6mm) thicknesses.

Triple Waterfall

The Triple Waterfall is perfect if you’re in search of a more dramatic finish for your table. This is available only in square, rectangular, and round cuts, for ½” glass.

O.G. (Ogee)

O.G. gives a beautiful, classic design to the glass. This is also only available for square, rectangular and round cuts of glass, with ½” thickness.


As funky as it sounds, the V-Groove (also known as the Plate Rail) is a decorative groove cut that can be combined with several other edgework finishes. This is available for square rectangular and round cuts, with 5mm to 19mm thicknesses.

If you’re in need of a customized glass top for your creative DIY project, or you need one for any furniture in your home, M&T Glass can cut a wide variety of shapes and sizes, along with unique glass edgework to create the perfect attractive and protective surface for your furniture.
