Styrofom plant protector cones in two sizes (see detailed instructions), nuts and bolts, ceramic tile pieces, portland cement, perlite, peat moss, drop cloth, face mask, gloves, large plastic mixing tub or tray (like for cement), chicken wire, wire cutters, small shovel and trowel, wire brush, drill, plastic wrap, broom handle, or tamping stick, 3/4" scrap plywood, construction adhesive
What are you most proud of? I'm glad I wrote it all down step-by-step when I did the project. The plans are my own design which I am happy to share. The link provided goes to detailed instructions at a free website, scribd.
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.
