The Concrete Table

Some of you know the story of the “Cement Table”. For those that don’t here is the short version. I wanted to make a table for our patio. At some point I landed on the idea of a cement table, I’d seen cement countertops and thought why not. Long story short… I was just about to rent the cement mixer and decided to “double check” my cement calculations. I was WAY OFF. My 120 lb table was actually going to need 450 lbs of cement.

So after running this problem by family and friends (and getting lots of laughs) My brother Tom suggested a tile table. Thanks Tom.

The table is almost done and looks awesome. It took a bit of reworking from the original cement table idea but it was well worth it.
