Concrete Dining Tables

Our concrete table tops have strong, durable surfaces. Each concrete top is individually handmade and will vary slightly from piece to piece. During the manufacturing and curing process, some pieces may develop small pits and hairline cracks, which are not flaws but individual characteristics of the material, making each top unique. A coat of wax has been applied to help prevent damage from some common liquids and substances. However, because concrete is a naturally porous material, do not set glasses directly on the concrete surface but use coasters to protect the top from condensation and the possibility of staining. All liquids and substances should be quickly cleaned from the surface. Take care when placing objects on the concrete surface. Although concrete is hard and durable, it can be damaged by sharp objects. Finish damage can occur from hot items being placed directly on the surface. Trivets need to be used to protect the concrete surface from heat. To clean, wipe away any excess spills from the surface and use a small amount of dishwashing liquid with warm water and a soft, clean cloth. Follow by drying completely. Do not use abrasive scrubbing pads or cleansers that can wear away the wax on the concrete. You may use a product designed for concrete surface for daily use. A non-toxic, food-safe concrete wax may be applied to help maintain your concrete table top.

I make bespoke polished concrete tables and polished concrete table tops using Micro-Cement. The technique I use allows me to emulate the look and feel of poured or cast polished concrete and stone, the surface is stain and water resistant and very durable. Polished Concrete is fast becoming a popular choice among interior designers. Traditionally the polished concrete look is achieved by diamond polishing cast or poured concrete. The process is labour intensive, causes disruption and can be very messy with a lot of dust being produced. My tables are made with a cementious coating of 5mm thick, highly durable Micro-Cement. Applied by trowel each application has its own character, is warm to the touch and water resistant. I can achieve a seemless, continuous finish on any surface including floors, walls and countertops, Polished Micro-Cement is fire resistant, breathable and ages superbly with a high resistance to rubbing or wear.

Once you’ve filled the form with your concrete mixture, we’ll want to level and smooth it all out. Using a scrap 2×4 piece of wood will work fine for the level and screeding of the concrete. Scrape the board from one side of the form to the other in a back-and-forth motion, scraping excess concrete out of the form and working it into low spots. Then we can vibrate the concrete either with a mallet, reciprocating saw (without the blade in), or orbital sander. Spend some time vibrating the concrete. Then trowel it all with a clean trowel and cover the whole concrete top with a plastic cover to help it cure evenly. Let the concrete cure and dry for the manufacturers recommended time. Once it has hardened slightly, you can come through and do a hard trowel of the bottom. Refer to the video for more information about this technique.

Hi Clint- Happy Easter! The table looks about 5″ thick. The middle portion is about 3 1/2″ thick. We accomplished this by using a piece of foam insulation only in the center while pouring the concrete. We also colored the concrete using an additive found at Home Depot (charcoal colored). We ended up skipping the Portland cement step, because we pounded the table for hours while the concrete dried, and had very few of the tiny holes as reference in DIY Pete’s video (I can’t remember what the formal name is for the holes). We used the same sealant (food grade water based sealant) the DIY Pete recommended. If I were to do the project again, I would look into GFIC (Glass Reinforced Concrete) to reduce the weight of the table. As I referenced, our table is 4’x6′, and used every ounce of muscle from 5 men to move in from the garage to the dining room (only 2 steps up). We also purchased Cheng wax sealant and Cheng concrete countertop cleaner, which have been wonderful for ongoing maintenance. We had an absolute blast with this project, and we are by no means DIY-ers. Give it a try! Let this community know if you have questions along the way, and I’m sure we’ll help as best we can. I’m posting a couple of measuring pictures for your reference. Good luck! Jess
