I think the length falls short of an adequate size...................30 inches on each side is a lot may be tipped when some one gets up and leans on it it a half inch glass ?

1/2" seems to follow the 1/3 rule...base should be at least 36"...
Expert:  Eddie replied 1 year ago.

well half inch glass is pretty weighty might be okay with it ............I assume you have can run a test on it ......worse comes to worst you can use a few little dabs of clear silicone on it or those clear spacers
