In this video, I show how to make a DIY Waterfall Concrete Coffee Table with a Live-Edge Slab Inlay. I used a white glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC) mix to get the gleaming white concrete. The live edge slab is Cuban mahogany and the legs are made from African mahogany.Read More
The Cutting Bored just uploaded a video of their concrete and live-edge inlay charcuterie board. (I'm trying to resist saying its a cutting board by the Cutting Bored :) ) The video indicates this board was inspired by my live-edge table build video, but this is really a unique twist on the design. They used inexpensive materials and still got a great looking result.
Generally, The Cutting Bored has a great YouTube channel going, so check out the rest of their videos as well, and show some love by subscribing.
For those that missed it, here is the original live-edge white concrete table that the Cutting Bored references in their video.
I created this cantilevered coffee table from a live-edge spalted maple slab and concrete. The angled concrete post was formed by slicing two sections from a standard 12" concrete form tube with a 15 degree angle, attaching these sections to the live edge slab, and pouring the concrete through the slab to form a solid post base extending through the table top. To cut the 12” concrete forming tube at a 15 degree angle, I created a 12” miter box from scrap plywood.
I again used a white glass-fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC) concrete mix, and this time, poured in the face coat for the table surface. For the backer mix, I used plasticizer to make a self-consolidating (SCC) type of GFRC.
