Do you like coffee tables but don’t want to have to pay for them? Well, the Amazing Construction Worker on YouTube has you covered. This video of a DIY coffee table project was posted on December 24th, 2019, and is closing in on 7 million views!
Who even knew that so many people were interested in building their own coffee tables?
To make this work, you do need to know a little bit about mixing cement, arranging tiles, and a little bit of DIY skill.
To start, lay out 6 tiles over plastic sheeting. Then arrange a series of bricks as a border around the outside. The bricks should be standing taller than the tile, creating almost a pit-like appearance at first.
At this point, you want to take your wet cement and pile it on in the pit area. This might take a little bit of time so you might want to play some “montage music” in the background to speed up the process.
You will also pour the cement around a support beam in what will be the middle of your table. You want to be careful to make sure the beam is directly in the center of your table or else your table will wobble.
You will also need a beam to hold the table up.
This can get a little tricky. What the Amazing Construction Worker recommends is placing the rest of the supporting beam inside a plastic bucket and pouring wet cement all around it.
Turn the bucket upside down and let the cement dry. Then, pour hot water on the bucket so you can remove the cement and support beam. Then place the cement block with the support beam and attach it to the other section of the beam that has been attached to the tabletop.
Now, your coffee table is able to stand sturdy.
Then, just go ahead and fill in the gaps between the tiles on the top of the table and you are all done!
Congratulations, you just made your own coffee table! Now that you’ve been able to master this task, think of al the other DIY projects that you can take on. There is no limit to what you can accomplish if you put your mind to it and watch instructional videos on YouTube!
The Amazing Construction Worker has over 554 thousand subscribers on YouTube. That’s a lot of people they’ve helped with their own DIY projects!
Other videos they have include how to make your own wood stove, flower pots, and many more. They also have several videos on how to upcycle products that would otherwise be destined for a landfill.
There is nothing more satisfying than completing a project and then enjoying the fruits of your labor.
Why purchase expensive furniture that will eventually break down on you when you can make your own? Not only will you save money but you will enjoy the furniture that much more knowing that it came from your own labor, time, and effort.
