Concrete Conference Table Created to Look Like Asphalt
Project Profile: Concrete Conference Table and Concrete Coffee Table
Featured Company: World Concrete in Gray, Tennessee
Matthew Bray, owner of World Concrete, recently created a 7-foot by 5-foot concrete conference table, weighing 750 lbs., for the company, Bracken Paving.
First, using a two-foot sonotube for the base, Bray siliconed it to plexiglass and put an 8-inch pipe in the middle, using plexiglass to divide it through the center. He then integrally colored the base black before sandblasting the outside to look like asphalt. Bray used a split-face granite edge form liner for the table, and a Modello custom stencil and Smith paint dye applied with HVLP for the logo. The whole thing was topped with a two-part epoxy sealer.
Another project, a coffee table for a private residence, also yielded beautiful results. Bray says he poured the table "Cheng style" using melamine and Scofield's padre brown and terra cotta integral colors and stains to make the table look like worn leather, before polishing parts of it to look like burnt wood. The legs were custom made by a woodshop, and there's not one single exposed screw in the whole piece.
