Tips for Making Granite Tables

Updated:2014-01-09 13:43:17
Granite is one of the oldest types of rock used in architecture. It is an igneous rock with interlocking crystals that can be seen with the naked eye. Granite is found all over the world, with different colors from the different quarry locations. Commonly used inside the home for countertops and floors because of its durability, it adds drama and interest to any room. Granite can be used as a table top through a variety of methods. Because it is heavy, wooden bases must be braced. More common bases are metal and iron.

Instructions as follows:

                                                    

Firstly, remove the old table top by carefully cutting it from the base of the table, or by unscrewing.
Secondly, take this top to a granite fabricator, using it as a template for a new top. Select a granite edge treatment.
Thirdly, clean and refinish the legs and base of the table. Add bracing to the base if necessary.
Fourthly, dry-fit the granite top on the base and mark the underside of the granite where the corners of the base end.
Fifthly, remove the granite countertop. Run a bead of carpenter's glue along all the surfaces of the top of the base.
Sixthly, replace the top, lining up the corner markings. Let the glue dry completely before using.
Seventhly, select the type of base you want from copper, steel, bronze or wrought iron. Common bases are a square column, round or T-shaped, and are either 48 or 54 inches high.
Eighthly, order the table top from a granite fabricator in the size and edge finish you want.
Ninthly, assemble the base following the manufacturer's directions. Screw the base legs together. Tighten with nuts.
