Concrete top dining table – Outdoor furniture can turn a boring terrace or patio into a festive gathering area. Good furniture of all types of weather, however, can cost a small fortune, and what is affordable for the average owner is often not durable. If you want to make your own furniture outdoors, take a cue from parks and other public areas. Concrete is durable and can cope with all types of weather, while still being fairly stain resistant and easy to clean. Seal your new cement table with masonry sealer so that it is sustained for a long time. Decide on the length and width of the table. Cut plastic coated wood from 2 inches by 4 inches to the appropriate length. Build a square or rectangular frame. Cover one side of the way more wood. Brush a layer of wood sealer quickly dried on the bottom with a brush and let it dry.

Fill the form almost complete with reinforced concrete. Leave the top quarter of the form blank. Use a rubber trowel to soften and level the concrete without fibers. Fill the remaining one quarter of the form with concrete without fibers. Use the rubber trowel to finish the concrete. Drag wooden flooring, or leveling device, from one end of the form to the other to make the concrete level, and then smooth the surface with a metal finishing paddle.
