|Each detail in a table top adds to the price, for example a rectangular top with 90
degree corners, would cost less than the same size and thickness table top, with
even slight radius or clipped corners.
WAYS TO GAUGE THICKNESS WITHOUT A TAPE MEASURE:
A standard emory board is 3/8 wide at one end and 1/2 inch wide at the other.
A standard #2 pencil is about 1/4"
A new legal pad is roughly 1/4" thick, as is a standard drinking straw, and a small sized
A large sized paper clip is about 3/8' of an inch at it's widest point
If you have a ruler or tape measure but are not sure of the measuring terminology,
please observe the following:
An inch has 16 marks, some are smaller and some are bigger.
There are 16 - 16ths
There are 8 - 8ths
There are 4 - 1/4s
There are 2 - 1/2s
You can give your measurements to us in marks, such as there are 10 marks of the
ruler, and we can translate that for you or use the handy chart below ...
|PLEASE BE ADVISED:
WHILE OUR CUTTERS ARE EXPERIENCED, ALL PATTERN CUTTING IS BY HAND AND ALL
THAT THAT IMPLIES. WE MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO CREATE YOUR TOP TO PERFECTION,
BUT PLEASE DO NOT EXPECT A HAND CUT ITEM TO LOOK LIKE A LASER OR WATER JET
CUT ITEM. WE CAN GET YOU A LASER OR WATER JET CUT TOP, IT WILL SIMPLY TAKE A
LITTLE LONGER AND COST MORE. PLEASE CALL IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.
|On the left is our standard flat ground shop edge. This edge is sanded smooth and has
a matt finish that can be oiled to add some gloss. It is shown next to a high gloss
There is no charge for the flat ground edge.
|Below is an example of a 1" bevel on each of the 9 mirrors in the
display. Often times customer ask us to "just bevel the edge" on
their glass. What they mean is, "just make it so it's not sharp." If
you ask for a bevel and we ask "what size" and that confuses
you, then chances are you do not actually want a bevel. Also, a
beveled edge adds .50-.95 cents an INCH to the cost of your glass.
|Often times tables and desks have a bull-nosed or decorative edge
work. In all cases it is recommended to stop the glass before this edge
work begins. If you don't, you will have a "ledge" of glass hanging out
over the edge that hangs on clothing or is bumped and moved around
resulting in constantly having to re-seat the glass. Of course it is
entirely up to the customer to have it cut either way.
