Propped up with easy to install aluminum brackets, marble tiles are used as structural pieces in this 21in (53cm) tall side table. Assembly can be completed in less than 30 minutes and the parts cost less than 100 USD on average. Steps include sanding the edges and corners of the marble and screwing the tiles into place with four brackets. Each bracket comes with padded screws so that the tiles are firmly held without risk of cracking or scratching.

  1. I like the concept. How could I make the table 30″ tall? Would it be stable?

    1. 30″ is probably too tall for a table like this. It might be possible if each tile is 12″ wide, there are 4 brackets on each leg (instead of 2), and if the top tile doesn’t exceed 18″ in length. Be prepared to add a “leg” or two on the long sides without legs if that does not work, though. Keep in mind that marble is a natural material and it does have weaknesses in it that will show themselves if you make it work too hard.

  2. Never thought about the a weight capacity of marble. And I did know that large countertops need support to prevent bowing. Thanks
