Cast Iron Bistro Table
This table has two main ingredients, iron and cement that are not often equated with dining tables. But if you have a busy family or a hectic restaurant of dining patrons this cast iron bistro table is up for the job. Cement is a substance that sets and hardens and it can be used to bind other materials together. It has recently gained popularity in the use of kitchen counter tops, everyday flooring and now table tops. It’s no surprise that this material is so liked because it’s smooth, durable and easy to clean. Portland cement is the most common type of cement used around the world today. It’s made by heating limestone with other materials similar to clay in a kiln to produce calcium oxide, or more commonly referred to as quicklime. This product is then mixed with other materials such as sand or gravel, grounded into a powder, and then sold as what we know as cement. It’s estimated that about 3,300 million tons of cement are produced each year. Now this cast iron bistro table may not weigh a ton but it’s heavy and durable. Perfect for the breakfast nook or on the sidewalk of a busy cafe, this cast iron bistro table will work hard for you.
