However many tables are not made from this kind of glass. Many coffee tables are in fact made from a thicker sheet of ordinary cheaper glass. If this glass shatters it can splinter into long spikes that can easily pierce the body.

They can later be removed when no longer needed. Drawers And Lift Top Lids. Lift Top Lids can also present a hazard for small children.
