This reader-submitted coffee table features hand-made joinery and a clever use of tile for the tabletop.
I wanted to share this project that I’m so proud of: a custom built coffee table with marble stone tiles on top.
To use stone tiles for the top of a table is a great way to give furniture a more luxurious feel without spending a lot of money. Me and my husband built this table from scratch without using any nails or screws, but instead doing a lot of chiseling and some gluing. We chose hemlock wood and stained it in red mahogany.
For the top, we used 12 x 12 inch white carrera marble tiles, which we put close together without any space savers; then we didn’t have to use grout and could create a more seamless surface.
Overall I love this technique and our coffee table is just gorgeous!
