How To Make An Awesome Table From Just Concrete and Wood!

    As we’ve shown you before here at, Ben Uyeda from HomeMade Modern is some kind of DIY genius. We’ve seen his Lego nesting table, now it’s time to see his DIY kitchen island made from just concrete and wood.

    Recently, Ben’s buddy came to him asking for a solution to a lack of space to prepare food on their rooftop deck. Ben’s response was to propose a weather proof kitchen island with a wooden frame and concrete work surface. Both stylish and functionary, the table was the ideal solution to Ben’s friend’s problems.

    The 5 main steps are set out below, but make sure that you watch the video at the end to get the full instructions!
