The home table was made of solid wood, round and round with a glass cover. The glass exploded at about 12 last night
Table glass must be made of toughened glass. The advantage of toughened glass is that it won't hurt when it breaks. Secondly, the thickness should be at least 8mm or too thin.

Toughened glass with high strength, the compressive strength can exceed 125MPa, 4~5 times larger than ordinary glass; impact strength is also very high, measured by steel ball, 0.8kg ball from 1.2m height, the glass can be kept intact. Toughened glass is much more elastic than ordinary glass, a piece of 1200mm * 350mm * 6mm toughened glass, the stress can occur after the bending deflection of 100mm, when the external force is withdrawn, still can restore the normal glass bending deformation of only a few mm. Good thermal stability, in cold and hot, not easy to crack is another characteristic of toughened glass. This is because the compressive stress of tempered glass can offset the tensile stress caused by rapid quenching and hot pressing. Toughened glass with thermal shock resistance, the maximum safe working temperature is 288 degrees Celsius, and can withstand the change of temperature difference of 204 degrees centigrade. In such a condition, an explosion should be a quality problem.
