Granite coffee table adds a stylish and elegant touch to your living room or family room. Buying a manufactured table is expensive and you have limited opportunities. When you make your own, you have the option to choose the color of granite and the type of wood used in the construction. The trick is to make the table strong enough to support the importance of granite and everything else is placed on the coffee table.

Place a 2-foot-of-4-foot-by-1-inch board and down on a flat surface. The board acts as the top of your granite coffee table. Cover the top of the board with a 1 “thick layer of kakelfix spread the glue evenly over the table with a morsel. Arrange granite tiles on top of the glue. Place the tiles side by side on the glue. Set a level on the top of the tiles, making sure the tiles are also on the wood. Measure the space not covered by tiles. Cut individual plates to fit the space with a tray saw and lay on the table. Cover granite tiles with a thin layer of grout, applied with morsel. While the operation is still wet, rub a damp sponge or cloth over the top. The sponge removes any grouting on the top of the tile, while grouting in between.
Place a rock polishing attachment on a slab. Turn the grinder and rub over the edges of the plates, where the granite meets the edges of the worktop. Polish stone leaves a smooth edge. Turn the tabletop upside down and measure 2 inches in from each corner of the table, which marks the location of your table leg. Drill a whole ½ inch deep into the corner. Work around the granite coffee table; drill a single hole in each corner. Place a screw-in table leg flat against a hole. Screw the leg into the hole until the top of the leg is level with the table. Screw table legs have a bolt at the top of the leg. Repeat this step with each of the table legs before using your new coffee table.
