Measurement: 28 inches x 28 inches (70 x 70 cm).
As you can see in the video, the table top is completely level. Even though a variety of tiles of varying thickness are used to handcraft it, the method employed (the "indirect method") is such that it dries upside down, ensuring a level surface. The pouring of the cement compensates for the discrepancy of height. Top grade extra strength cement is used in the crafting of the table which gives the piece longevity.
Then a sealant is applied to further protect the surface.
The base is not included in the order.
As with all handmade pieces, there are imperfections which add to the beauty of the artistic piece.
