Collection: Skeewbacker Tabletops

SKEEWBACKER TABLETOPS AND CIRCLES

Tabletops and circles you can mosaic are here! These are Skeewbackers cut into sizes that work well as tabletops that you can mosaic onto. They are waterproof, rot proof, ultra lightweight, clean, and easy to work with. There is no backer preparation, other than knowing how you will attach them to your table base.

All tabletops are 1/2" thick and constructed from a rigid polystyrene foam core sandwiched between waterproof membranes. If you wish, you can tile the edges, or paint the edges, just use appropriate paints with no solvents, as solvents will compromise the foam core center. Acrylic paints are the best. You can also put grout or thinset over the edges.

Recommend thin set (mortar) for your adhesive.

Idea for attaching Skeewbacker tabletops to existing tables

If you have an existing table that you would like to cover with a new mosaic top, here is an idea. We used a double-sided mounting tape that we cut into strips and applied to the top of a metal table top. Then we centered a Skeewbacker tabletop over it and pressed it down onto these strips. The strips held the top well and eliminated slipping and tipping. We pulled the Skeewbacker tabletop off of the strips and there was no damage to the backer. So you might want to try using double-sided mounting tape. Every surface is different so test it out. Below is a picture of the tape with a sample strip. We used Scotch Mount Double-Sided Mounting Tape. You'd want to put several strips down to hold your top in place.

Note: Sizes vary 1/8" -1/4" due to blade thickness when cutting
