Besides, how thick does a concrete table top need to be?

ThicknessThe standard concrete countertop slab thickness is 1 ½ to 2 inches, similar to countertops made of marble or granite. However, contractors can create the illusion of a thicker countertop by casting a drop-front edge.

Additionally, are concrete table tops durable? Concrete has the unique ability of being incredibly versatile and flexible as a material while also being incredibly durable, long-lasting, and weather-resistant. A concrete top outdoor dining table is perfect for this type of climate.

Similarly, it is asked, what kind of concrete should I use for a table top?

The best concrete mix for this project is a countertop mix, which pros use to cast concrete countertops. Ask for one at a local concrete products dealer (do an online search for “concrete countertop mix”). You'll need about 50 lbs. of mix to make the 17-in.

How do you treat concrete tables?

Do not use any heavy abrasive, bleach-based or ammoniated cleansers, as they will wear down the sealant. For added protection and polishing, we recommend using carnauba wax (such as Trewax® Clear Paste Wax) every 2-5 months. To apply, dampen a clean sponge or a soft, clean cotton cloth and wring out completely.
