Building a coffee table with glass inserts, need some advice
Hello all, I am building a coffee table out of dimensional lumber with two glass inserts for the top. Below you will see a sketch of the top of the coffee table with the glass inserts labeled. The edges I want to router are crudely outlined in green. The top will be made of 2x4s. The two glass inserts are 11"x21" The overall dimensions of the coffee table top are: 49" wide, and 27 1/2" deep. I want to router the edges of the 2x4s that are directly in contact with the glass inserts. As I understand it, I need to make a 1/4" lip with the router so that the glass inserts will rest on them. My plan is to router the edges of the 2x4s before assembly. Will this work ok? Thanks.
