The above kitchen table features a Silestone quartz table top. Although, not as heavy as granite, the large quartz top is still heavy enough to require a custom table frame design.

Once I discovered similar tables made from Kee Klamp fittings and concrete table tops on your blog, I decided on this design. The Kee Klamp fittings were easy to assemble, so I could focus on creating the concrete table tops."
