Plate Glass

Plated Glass - Custom Glass in Geneva, Illinois
Geneva Glass Works specializes in custom cut glass table tops that will help protect your wood tables while still allowing you to appreciate their beauty. We will measure or make custom template patterns to assure a perfect fit. If protection is not what you are looking for, and the glass itself is the table top, we can accommodate you with custom tops in thickness of glass ranging from 3/8" - 3/4", in clear, starfire, bronze, gray, sandblasted and several other styles.

We also have different edge work available such as flat and pencil, bevel, ogee, and barked. Patterned and shaped tops are welcome, we can fabricate to most patterns, rounded corners, scalloped edges, clipped corners, ovals, rounds, and boat shape. These are just a few of the specialty fabrications our team can produce. We can also provide you with replacement patio table top glass in several shapes and glass types.

When ordering or getting a free price quote on a table top, you will need the following information:

  • Size of the glass.
  • Shape of the glass. Round, Square, rectangle, any type of pattern, etc...
  • Thickness of glass. This depends on the size of the glass, its support and the weight it would be carrying.
  • If you want beveled edges. This is the type of finish you want around the edges.
  • Polish on the edges. This is important in places where the edges of the glass have a higher visibility and need to be polished to a high shine.
  • Whether you need holes or notches in the glass. Remember that umbrella post in your patio table?
  • Type and color of the glass.
  • Finally we need to know if the glass needs to be tempered.

Glass Shelves

Glass Shelves - Custom Glass in Geneva, Illinois
Glass shelves make a wonderful addition to a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, bar, or office. Whether you want to add new bookshelves or shelf space inside a kitchen cabinet, glass shelves bring a touch of elegance to any room without crowding it, they even lend an illusion of increased size and depth to a space.

Glass shelves are less intrusive than wood or metal shelves. They allow light to pass through, leaving a glow on the translucent material. To magnify this effect, you can use special lighting from above or below the space depending on the look you are trying to achieve.

When ordering glass shelves, the following criteria are important to keep in mind:

  • Size of the glass shelf. There are some limitations which may depend on the support available for the shelf.
  • Thickness of the glass shelf. Thinner glass is used for smaller applications, whereas thicker glass is used for larger applications. The typical thickness of glass shelves ranges from 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", and 3/4".
  • Shape of the glass shelf. Depending on the size of your space, you can choose square, rectangle, triangle, or pie shaped. Just keep in mind that there is a limit to how far the glass shelves may extend from a supporting wall.
  • Edges of the glass shelves. Choose a simple, polished edge for a more traditional, elegant look, or a beveled for a more modern style.
  • Tempered or not. In most instances glass shelves are made of flat sheets of glass; however, depending on the size and location of the glass shelf, safety can be an issue. In these cases, we can use tempered glass.
  • Hardware to hold the glass shelves. Hardware finishes to consider include chrome, brushed nickel, black, white, satin chrome, brass, and many more. Choosing the right finish is essential in ensuring coordination of the glass shelves with the rest of the space. Go to to view the several options for shelving hardware.
