Hey there, Stranger! Hope you’re having a great week. It’s been a wonderful two weeks so far because I teamed up with my friend and fellow badass builder, Sarah from The Created Home to bring you the plans and tutorial on our Geometric Furniture Collection. Did you see the Geometric Bookshelf, Concrete and Wood Dining Table, or Concrete and Wood Coffee Table? We’re back to share the matching DIY Concrete and Wood Side Table today!
I just love the concrete and wood combo! Grab the plans below and stop by The Created Home to read all about Sarah’s build process. She shares a ton more photos and helpful tips. She’s also working on a dedicated post on how she made that beautiful concrete top, so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, you can check out this video on how to make a concrete table top by DIY Pete.
Don’t you just love those mitered joints? When you have mitered joints like the ones in this table base, it’s best to “size the end grain” for the strongest joint. To do so, simply dilute wood glue with a 50:50 ratio with water and brush this mixture onto the end grains. Once the end grain is dry, you can apply the glue at full strength and join the mitered edges. This will help create a stronger mitered joint.
Thanks for dropping by! Be sure you check out the other pieces in this Geometric Collection! If you build any of the pieces in this series, we’d love to see them. Please tag us on social media so we can see your creations!
