couldn't figure where else to ask this......

I need to move a piece of el cheapo glass 450mi. I have a patio table with glass top. I'd like to take it to a different area. How do you do this?

I've thought about breaking it up here, throwing it away, and getting a new piece at destination.

I'm hoping there's some way that will give me a pretty good chance of making it all the way with it intact.... I'll have some flexibility, as I'll be hauling it in a pickup truck.

Maybe putting it between a "sandwich of plywood" ? With other stuff in there and the sandwich between them, maybe that would work.

Any better thoughts?????

Table tops are tempered glass which tends to be pretty tough if you can avoid point impacts and banging the edge. Your idea of a plywood container sounds good, maybe combined with some kind of padding (like one of those heavy moving blankets).

RE: couldn't figure where else to ask this......

Some 3/8 inch plywood and some 1/4 inch foam insulation.

Fasten the pieces of plywood together with screws from both sides.

Use short enough screws they do not come through and cut anyone who has to handle the 'sandwich.'
