carrie and i are heading down to richmond this weekend to pick up this beaut.

it'll be used as a form and edging for a concrete coffee table.

lucite base to come hopefully by the end of next week.

the weld.  should i keep it like this or brush the entire frame?  i'm leaning towards raw.


  1. Leave it like that. It will compliment the concrete... what sort of stain are you using for that? Or are you just letting it patina thru use & sealing it later?

  2. How heavy will it be? That looks like it will hold a lot of concrete!

  3. no stain, plain construction grout. will seal it as soon as it cures

    it'll hold about 60 lbs of concrete, i think. the frame is only 2" deep.
