 Being a knitter and paper crafter I am not sure how to go about this. My boyfriend was transporting an antique china cabinet and he broke one of the glass shelves that goes with it. At the moment there is only one shelf on the thing so we really can't use it yet. How hard would it be to get a sheet of glass and cut and sand it to replace it? And where could I get such specific equipment? Or is there some sort of repair shop that could do this for us? We have a small apartment with no porch or backyard, so this might be to much right now.

Just get the measure you need and go to a glass store. Like auto glass, window or the like. It will be cheaper to have them cut it, rather than try to do it yourself. If you get tempered glass then it will be less likely to break just from a simple drop.
