    I have an alphastyle 2 shelf glass stand from Tesco and has the built in cable management tube at the back.

    It's great, but now i'd like to add another shelf between lower and middle shelf.

    Where can i get the glass from? It won't have much weight on, so doesn't neccessarily need to be tempered glass. However i need the edges burred off and rounded.

    Can i buy glass like this? If so where?

    I will just cut notches in the stand legs and slot the new shelf in.

    The alternative approach is to just put riser blocks on existing equipment to raise new XBOX above media center, but i'd rather get a new glass shelf.

    cheers

    brave move. if you're going to do it I'd definately use safety glass.
