Great looking concrete counter top. Any hints on what you do differently to get the color and nice smooth finish on top?

I have been planning a corner install with work surface on both sides of the oven. Initially I was thinking about finding some granite or other material for the sides, but now you have me wondering about doing a nice concrete counter top on the sides if the technique is not too difficult.

The countertop is easy compared to building a brick oven. Since its poured upside down the top and sides are finished as smooth the mold surace.
I placed the mold ontop of two sawhorses. I placed a pencil under one corner and rock and vibrate the mold. I mixed a fairly dry mix. Dry time was one week.

I used a sand sand sand cement (3:1) mixture which worked great.
The rebar was welded in a tic tac toe pattern.

I dont have any other hints. Just go for it. Its inexpensive and fun.

I somehow missed this when you put the pictures up.

I have a work table made from cedar trees cut down on our property and toped with recycled cedar fencing. My table is bigger but not better!

Nice Job! Well Done!
