How to Make a DIY Concrete and Wood Dining Table Top

As we all know, wood specializes in making furniture, fire features, counter tops, and outdoor accents that combine art, design, and craftsmanship. Be brave, blend it with different materials such as stone, concrete, and metal to make each of his creations unique.

Particularly, concrete and wood in a dining table top are a match made in heaven, especially when it comes to furniture design. Their unique organic qualities complement each other beautifully, creating a yin-yang effect that strikes a balance between two opposites.

Are you fascinated by this special furniture? Now let’s have a look on how to DIY one.

Step 1

Re-saw it so the outside of the river table top will be mirrored to each other. By doing this, you can create two live edges and two straight edges. The straight edges will be the outside edges of the table top and the live edges will make the “river” part of the middle.

Step 2

Then sand the wood slabs down and put the finish on or do this after pouring the concrete.

Step 3

Make the base. In order to make the base look slightly more clean and professional, you can run these boards through our planer. The form we recommend melamine boards so the concrete won’t adhere to it. Be sure to seal the edges of the form with silicone to make sure there aren’t any leaks when you pour the concrete.

Step 4

Drill horizontal holes in the slabs for rebar to fit into in order to add stability to the concrete. It will ensure the concrete on your table top won’t crack over time.

Step 5

Recommend running your slabs through a planer so the edges of concrete and wood are flush.

Step 6

Pour the concrete.

Step 7

Let it dry and do a ton of sanding/grinding to get it all flush.
