With a float. Make the centre about half an inch higher than the sides. It's not difficult

weather is shocking so i'm going to have few more days before I get on with my slab so any extra tips are most welcome
I only have straight edge and medium size metal float is this enough to get job done or should I get myself large bull float as well?

If you are doing a large car park then yes.

Your float will be fine, just do it by eye.

For some of us the oven is the excuse to get some cool tools but a concrete truck may be hard to hide from the social director.

someone mentioned before i should leave framework for a week in place so bottom part will stay but how soon can i remove the edges? timber that i used to create "lip" around the edge have the machined groves in it so i want to avoid sticking issues if i can.
would be safe to remove it after 24 hours?
