Re: Concrete Counter tops
There is a member here that poured and finished his own concrete countertops. He chronicled his journey here and gathered our input along the way. He did an amazing job, but it was a LOT of work and it is extremely messy. Casting the top is the easy part, after that you've got to polish them, the hard part is lifting them and putting them into place. Trust me when I say that a 2" x24" x 8' section of concrete is going to be extremely heavy, you had better have eaten your Wheaties for breakfast and have 6 of your strongest friends around when it comes time to move them into place.
Unfortunately, I believe that his thread was lost with site upgrades and software changes, but you can search for it by searching for Walt Deckhouse. At the very least, you can send him a message. He doesn't come around very often anymore, but he does pop in from time to time and will likely offer his advice if you contact him.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
