BENT CONCRETE SIDE TABLE

Our most popular how-to guide walks you through the entire process of making a flexible rubber mold and using it to shape fiber reinforced concrete into a fantastic side table. The four legs are created as the mold is bent upward while the concrete is still “plastic”, creating four graceful arches that give this table a timeless sense of style. The rubber mold can be used for hundreds of additional castings and will last for many years.

FABRIC FORMED CONCRETE FIRE TABLE

This is a fun project that we completed during a recent training while exploring the use of vinyl upholstery fabric as a forming material. To quickly create the dramatic transition from a flat table surface to the trough holder, the trainees used a standard shop vac to hold the forms shape while casting the fiber reinforced concrete mix.
