brandon gore coffee saucer concrete table Concrete Coffee Table with Cast in Saucers

skillbuilder concrete 158x158 Concrete Coffee Table with Cast in SaucersI dig this “Orson” coffee table from Brandon Gore of Tempe, Arizona, who writes:

Each top is cast in a highly engineered composite concrete, and sealed with a cutting-edge reactive sealer that cannot peel or yellow. The steel base is crafted in-house, each piece carefully cut and fitted, each weld obsessed over to ensure many lifetimes of use, and when finished, each receives a hand-rubbed wax finish.

I don’t know for sure, but I bet Brandon would sell you one, if you’re interested. Or, you could try making your own by pouring concrete into a melamine mold box (as in this tutorial from DIY Network) with upside-down saucers glued to the bottom. [Thanks, Brandon!]
