DIY: Glass Coffee Table on Wheels

Izabella Simmons May 17, 2013

Who has $2,000 to drop on a glass coffee table on wheels? I don’t, which is why I’m considering making my own.

If you’re like us, and admire the pricy Tavolino Con Ruote (a glass table designed by Gae Aulenti, recently seen in 10 Versatile Coffee Tables on Wheels), then read on to see how you can create something similar for a fraction of the price. 

N.B. Etsy seller Andrew Kim also offers an Aulenti and Fontana Arte Inspired Glass Table for $885.

For those who prefer the look of new casters, consider ordering two pairs from McMaster-Carr (which carries endless options in different dimensions, starting around $30). Source the glass (make sure it’s tempered) from your local glass shop or online from a supplier like Vermont-based Dulles Glass & Mirror. They will be able to cut the table to your preferred dimension and drill holes to fit the wheel hardware (screws and nuts).
