Tabletop.............


I just took a tabletop out of the mold and allowing it to thoroughly dry. As soon as I have determined it to be dry I will sand the edges and corners and place it on the short stand which sits beside the top. The slot in the middle of the top will be planted with succulents. This top is 44" X 21" and is the second one I have made. The first top was sold almost as soon as it was displayed for sale! 


The mold is ready to be oiled and filled again. I'm thinking I will add concrete colorant to the mix for the next top. I like to make stands for the tops and other projects well ahead of time from recycled wood then placed outside to weather. My customers like rustic but then I have never offered them anything with a fancy finish.


Four days from start to finish! Here is the final product that has been sanded and is now ready to be planted! Time to start another one..........

And finally planted!
