In this project DIY Pete will teach you how to Make a Concrete Coffee Table and how to embed a metal logo in concrete. You’ll learn how to make a concrete mold, how to mix concrete, how to polish concrete counters, and how to seal a concrete counter or table top. Check out my concrete dining table video to learn how to finish a concrete top using an orbital sander: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZyeVPEqbF8.
At 2 inches thick this table is going to be around 260 pounds. Concrete weighs about 17 lbs/ sq foot at 1 1/2 inches and 22.5 lbs / sq foot at 2 inches thick. The weight does hold it in place, but I like to use some 100% silicon to prevent it from shifting.
