    Where to get glass cut down for a DIY table?

    I have a hatchway frame from a shipwreck that I'd like to make into a coffee table.
    The frame is bronze.

    I have a piece of glass from an old table. 3/8 inch glass which is oval and much longer than I need or would like.

    The hatch frame is 28 inches wide by 40 inches long.
    The glass I have is 38 inches by 68
    I'd like it like cut to the same pattern as the frame about 32onches by 44 inches for a little overhang.
    Is there a glaser that would cut it for me?
    Or do they only cut what they sell?

    Any one have any recommendations?

      I,d recommend a friend of mine for 25 years ,but he turned in a real ass hole . If you have the slightest bit of tales you can do it your self.

      Make your first line score it with a glass cutter,soaked in kero .then tap underneath with a rubber mallet ,from on side to the next. Then it will just drop off .
      Do the other sides the same way, get wet sand paper and a sander and do the edges so not sharp. Go a head not hard.if I can do so can you.

        I've cut glass many years ago but thin window pane stuff for fixing old windows.
        This is beyond my experience level.

          I used these guys once some years ago.
          They did a good job for me and seemed like the kind of place that can cut your glass.
          Probably worth a call.
