To furnish our garden but also possibly the kitchen, we can make a stone table (or masonry table). To build it is not difficult; In fact, you just need to follow some guidelines, and determine the type of foundation for the support. In the following steps, then we see how to proceed, to get this functional and refined table suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
You need to have these tools:
- Iron corner brackets
- Arc welding machine
- Concrete blocks
- Stones and gravel
- Red bricks
- Concrete and cement
- Hacksaw for iron
To start Let’s say for the kitchen we can choose a solid wood base, for example, trapezoid shaped, so typical of a commonly called fratino table. The masonry floor we can instead build, using concrete blocks to be fixed then on the corner pieces of iron, properly assembled (welded or screws), as a setting for the tray. In the end all we can finish with a red brick or marble tiles, perhaps in keeping with existing ones in the kitchen.
Another option is to create the base with wrought iron; in fact, in this case with an arc welder voltaic we care to assemble the rods and of the triangular rods, so as to create standing, decorations and the frame with the appropriate keying to insert the brick. After this stage we can only proceed with the laying of the supporting surface, which in this case also we can create with tiles, concrete blocks or using of hollow flat panels attached to each other, and then unite them permanently with a plaster which acts as a screed for laying the tiles. An alternative is to apply on the gravel shelf, and to do that, it is necessary to proceed when the layer of concrete is still soft, so that after drying, becomes stable and compact.
A masonry table especially if we have to put it in a garden, it can however be made entirely with bricks, without any other material added. Specifically, just take two concrete blocks to use as a foot to the right and left, and then with a wooden frame, we create the splines necessary to insert other blocks or red bricks or stones. In all cases you should cover the entire surface with the flatting, to prevent the weathering does not create structural problems, making the table then.
