1. Glass tops are expensive to go out and buy retail. And, you can turn pretty much anything into a table if you have a glass top!
2. Extra glass tops are easy to store when not in use, just lean them against a back wall of a closet, or flat under a bed, or against the wall of your garage. You get the point.
3. You have a lot more options for room rearranging when you have a stock pile of glass tops of different shapes and sizes.
Case in point,
ceramic pots with glass tops make great tables
covering carved or intricate furniture so it can be use as a table
placing two nightstands back to back with a glass top makes a nifty sofa table or buffet.

How about a pigeon cage covered with a piece of glass for a unique coffee table. They added casters to this cage also. Pretty awesome
lots of table options when you have lots of glass tops!
Just sayin! : )
