Some Quick Advice

I have a 1/2" tempered glass top that I want to put equidistant risers under to equally support the weight of a person and maybe some extra equipment like a chair (still figuring out details but it wouldnt be more than that). It is 60 x 48. The issue and confusion I am having here is

    I also need the risers to be at least 10" high. Any help would be very appreciated

    Is this for a magic trick? PVC is a good choice because it's cheap and strong, and also won't be hard or heavy enough to accidentally shatter the glass like metal or wood might. Any hardware store will have it.

    You should add a layer of perspex film to glass for protection,

    I recommend metal for risers depends on what youre doin but for glass you want strong support and metal fittings and clamps.

    This is a stupid idea, glass cannot do what you want safely especially only 1/2. Any ?'s call your insurance company

      My chair rolls my fat ass around on glass all day and I walk on it, on carpet. It's like 1/4" thick.

      its tempered glass not annealed glass. tempered glass can take like 500-1000 lbs and even then its shatterproof. you sure are new huh?

        The average diyer is 500 lbs and I assume from his description it'll be a poorly supported platform aka live load. Does that "500-1000" lb figure seem like a lot now? I personally haven't seen many half inch tempered glass floors.

        It's not shatterproof. Any damage to the edge of the glass and it will indeed shatter.n8nxa

          and that is extremely unlikely hence why tempered glass is widely used

    You're not serious, right? I can't tell if you're shitposting or legitimately retarded. Enjoy your injuries if you're being serious.

    Go to the mechanic, ask for some used spark plugs, break apart the ceramic and gently toss them onto your tempered glass.

    They'll spread out evenly to show you where you need to add supports.
