What advice would you give someone starting this project? This should not be your first hypertufa project. It takes thought, planning, and adjustments as you go. Try your hand at a few basic pieces before making this table. If you look at the instructions in the link, I have photographs of the construction detail for the plywood tabletop support, and of how to assemble the pieces. The "tuffets" were made out of some concrete pieces and rocks laying around in the garden. I used construction adhesive. They were made at least 5 years ago and they are still well-glued.

Too cute! love the little 'Tuffets'...I especially enjoy making large leaf shaped flat containers. Birds love them for a sip of water. Linda
