This side table was the culmination of a fair amount of wood milling. The result was some very unique wood patterns that really add a lot of detail to the piece. I was quite pleased with how both the wood and the concrete turned out. I cut down the oak from an old Savannah homestead – the owner was adding a garage. The concrete is made from white cement with a tan sand and has a design strength of 8000psi. The top is 1.5″ thick with the embedded arrows. The entire top has a 1/8″ high gloss epoxy finish that is heat resistant. I gave it to my parents.

Unique table. I had never seen wood inlaid into concrete.

Your table looks cool. Don’t see many hexagon shaped. Leg location for me in the past has been a dilemma. What are the dimensions?

Very impressive, especially when considering the fact that you mixed wood and concrete into the project. Just the woodworking and the angles and joints are impressive – But adding concrete – WOW. Your parents raised quite the son they are most certainly proud of. Congratulations to the whole family!

The hexagonal top measures 24″ from side to side and 27″ from corner to corner. It is 23” tall. I found that using only three legs eliminated the chance (more like a guarantee) that one or more legs would not contact the ground. I would have struggled with six legs.
Thanks for all of the encouragement.

Thanks for the dimension post concrete.

I’ve been making some six sided tables, but use a single center post and then four legs with adjustable feet to keep it from tipping over.
