3. Teak is pretty tough stuff. It can take a lot of abuse.
But so can a sheet of glass. Don't worry about scratches. It will take years to get so bad you can't stand it. I also suspect people will be gentler with the glass than you think. Most people will fear breaking it. That works in your favor.
