Frequently Asked Questions

How are the tables made?

Handmade custom cement concrete portable round indoor outdoor dining table dinner table kitchen table made to look like real wood rustic feel heavy grain or smooth finish by Rustic Elegance at Capital City Public Market Boise Idaho ID and Patio Life Eagle Idaho ID black grey greys brown

Our cement table tops are "replicated" from hand-picked vintage barn wood.  Materials used to achieve an authentic wood plank appearance are proprietory in nature, but we can assure you they are cement!

Our outdoor furniture consists of cement, backer board and steel tubing (with a protective coating), made with the intention of being placed beneath a patio cover to avoid heavy snow loads on dining tables with large surface areas.

Cleaning?

Cement surfaces are moisture resistant.  Moisten a clean cloth with water (avoid chemicals) to clean table top surface and metal trim as needed.  Use a large bristle brush or a vacuum to clean between grooves.  We also now have smoother planks for your custom-made item.

Hot items?

Table tops are made of cement, but do have a protective sealant applied.  For this reason, warm items may be placed on table tops, however, we recommend avoiding hot items to come in direct contact with the table top surfaces.

How heavy?

Our heaviest standard items are the dining table (220 lbs.) and the rectangular fire table (250 lbs.)  These tables are not heavier than tables made of real wood slabs.  Furniture pads for indoor items, and casters for wine barrel fire tables help our tables to slide / roll with ease.

Our cement planks do not need to be resealed, and other than cleaning as needed, require very little maintenance.  However, wine barrels may need to be resealed every couple of years with a quick coating of linseed oil.

No, we are set up for an entirely different production process.  We may, however, consider this type of finish in the future.  For now, we focus on achieving a beautiful authentic wood plank appearance for our cement table tops.

Counter tops?

We do not make counter tops, per se.  We can make any size table top without the base; however, keep in mind there needs to be a finished edge with steel trim all the way around the table top.   Our product may be better suited for free-standing items, such as a kitchen island.
