This marble table is a fantastic beginner project with no tools required and will look great both indoors or outside.

The project

 

While I was creating this travertine side table, I came across a gorgeous marble paver at Bunnings.

I just had to buy one in hopes that I could find a use for it. I knew it would be the perfect table top so I set out to find some table legs and stumbled upon hairpin steel table legs.

 

I am all for easy D.I.Y. projects. This project required no measuring as the back of the paver has a grid of lines that makes it easy to get the legs even. I simply placed the paver upside down and used my trusty Selleys Hold Up Construction Adhesive to secure all four legs to the paver.

I then waited 24 hours for the glue to set before turning the table over to see the finished result.

Thank you MitchellMc for your reply.  I think that the instructions that @sammilne has given are so straightforward to follow, that there shouldn't be any problems for me.  Maybe patience might be needed, because I would be so tempted to turn the table over before the 24 hours!!  Something I have to learn!
