Thin Entryway Table – While this type of surfaces can be foind in the business of the branch (gardening or furniture stores). Manufacturing such a surface at home can be a more economical and personal alternative. Although that will depend on the type of wood that depending on the support structure and the mortar mixture used. In order to build a cement table it is not necessary to have special knowledge or tools, as it is possible to take advantage of the support base of an old table, provided that this part of the furniture is in good condition and has the necessary robustness to support the cement plate that will go on its top.
Those who possess skills in carpentry can take on the additional challenge of putting together their own support with the wood of their choice. First of all, you must assemble the mold into which the material is to be pouring. For this, you can take a rectangle of agglomerate coated in melamine whose measurements will depend on the dimensions of the frame of the thin entryway table stand. In addition to the rectangle, it will be necessary to cut four pieces that correspond to the walls of the mold, two long and two short, the former having to protrude from the margins of the base, in order to facilitate their subsequent removal.
Once all the pieces are cut, they have united them to arm the mold using nails or screws. Taking care of not to cause damages in the wood. Then all the inside edges of the box should be caulk, using colored silicone to more easily detect stains and excess sealant. This material can also be use to create rounded edges on the future cement board. Care must be take to clean all stains, as any imperfection on the surface of the melanin will inevitably be printing on the fresh concrete. To do a cleaner job you can place masking tape near the edges and corners to caulk.
The silicone is apply following the line and then is smooth with the finger, then removing the tape before the adhesive drying. In this way, the mold is already finish. Before pouring the cement can include details to be etching on the surface of the thin entryway table. Such as leaves of ferns left for one or two days pressed in cardboard or in a book. The next step in building a polished cement table will consist of pouring the concrete mix into the properly leveled mold. Attention should be pay to the mixing instructions of the product, especially the recommend amount of water.
