Concrete Dining Table – Steel tube base and concrete table top

Concrete tables are a hot item.  Trueform Concrete is seeing a surge in residential and commercial clients requesting custom tables to be fabricated for them.  Some common materials used for concrete table bases are  steel, wood, and concrete.  Steel is an interesting material of choice because there are so many options available.  From reclaimed i-beams with beautiful patinas to polished stainless steel, the options are endless and can be made to match the design of your space.

This project came to Trueform as an opportunity to design a table base and tabletop.   The client’s only requirement was that it looked thick and had enough leg room to fit their custom chairs.  The table base was constructed of 3.5″ x3.5″ tube steel.  The base had a top section that extended past the leg supports to help carry the load of the concrete.  Although the concrete dining table top  was constructed of lighter weight, higher strength GFRC,  we feel that the more support the better when it comes to overhangs.  The tabletop was constructed at 1″ thick with a 2 1/2″ apron drop edge.  This allowed the concrete table top to sit on and completely cover the steel frame.  The tabletop was made in Trueform’s Signature Finish in the color Cobblestone.
