Build the mold out of Melamine. Assemble the mold. Pour the concrete. You may have seen some of the other videos I’ve created in the past about making concrete counters. I show a couple different methods of how to finish concrete. Here are the other two videos in case you are interested in starting to work with concrete. Let the concrete cure.

Remove the mold and flip the table. Polish the table using a concrete wet polisher. Seal the concrete.

I built my table base using FREE plans from Ana White over at Here is a link to the plans and she also has a downloadable PDF. The table is modified to fit the concrete top and so the lights can be strung under the trough and the coasters. I modified Ana’s plans by using a 2×10 for the stretcher and 2×8’s for the horizontal end pieces. 2×6’s are used for the vertical part. Here is a basic diagram of the sizing adjustments. Please use Ana’s plans to help with assembling.

Add LED lights and some ice! The trough is 36 inches long, 6 inches wide, and 7 inches deep. So it will hold plenty of beverages!
