I've often wondered, has anyone tried the same thing with vermicrete?
It is portland based as well, would it survive direct flame?
Dave, start that new thread, I find this discussion very interesting.

I have tried it with perlite which it the same mineral as vermiculite and it does not survive either. The common thread, obviously, is porltand cement. CA cement may work.

Tom, you seem to be the guru on all things related to brickwork/masonry/concrete, can you please point me to the scientific research you have used for the basis of you opinion of not using detergents in brickwork/masonry/concrete?

Much obliged.

Hi Deejayoh, your build looks great, I was looking at hardibacker, which I would prefer, but it states its not rated for exterior, so was leaning towards wonderboard, what are your thoughts.

Can I ask where you got your stainless roll out and doors? Was looking at a roll out or tilt out, but was worried actual can size would be really small, what dimensions are the garbage can?

Take care, pat

Man, you do good work. the counters look great and i think the color is perfect with your veneer layer.
I got lost in all the discussion of plasticizers and the other big words being bantered about.
So did you decide to polish? You are finishing a very nice setup. ]

Pat - I used hardieboard/panel - which is exterior rated. It comes in 4 x 8, 9, or 10 foot sheets - as opposed to hardiebacker which comes in 3 x 5 sheets and is intended as an interior tile backer. Wonderboard is fine, but tough to work with.

As to the doors - I got them from Amazon, of all places! I shopped around quite a bit and they had the best price for what I wanted. The brand is RCS. The quality is surprisingly good. The garbage can unit I ordered is this one
Amazon.com: RCS Stainless Steel Pull Out Trash Drawer: Home & Kitchen

I haven't sourced a trash can yet, but it seems to be a standard 13g size.

Tracy -
thanks. I am polishing. I got up to 400 grit on one section today. It is looking pretty good. The edges are a bit dodgy, but I guess it will just be "rustic". On the color - it did not turn out quite as dark as I wanted so I think I am going to apply a black stain. We'll see. I wanted it to be almost black

BTW, As you can see in the picture, I have finished installing the veneer all the way up to the countertops last week and I think it looks great. I wish I would have taken a better picture of that. Makes all the difference in the world to not have any open patches

The upside down pour for the oven landing did not come out as well. I have lots of bugholes. Still working on that one! I hope to get both counter pieces polished up to 800 grit tomorrow and then do a slurry layer for the bugholes. I want to finish with 1500 grit on Thursday. Friday it is supposed to start raining here and who knows when that will end!

Hey DJ,

Lookin nice. I just polished off my slurry coat last night at the 400 grit level. It took care of most of the bug holes as well as the porous sides. I had polished to 400, slurried, let dry for several days then polished with 800, starting to get a sheen now. Mix a small dry batch of portland and colorant and when ready to slurry added a fortifier. Counter bottoms look very nice............

More progress today. I got all the countertops polished up to 800 grit. What a mess that makes! I had puddles of concrete mud all over my patio. I got most of it cleaned up, but it was a pain

I applied a concrete slurry to all the bugholes. I am amazed at how well it seems to have hidden them! I may need to do one more pass with the slurry for the big holes, but the edges and problem areas look 100% better than when I started.

Starting new 36" build-wp_000164.jpgStarting new 36" build-wp_000165.jpgStarting new 36" build-wp_000166.jpg

Tomorrow I will be taking another pass with the 800 grit, and then hopefully a final pass with 1500 grit.

I am thinking I am going to try to outsource the stucco on my oven house. I am getting tired, and that is a skill I don't think I am going to reuse. I do think I will try to do concrete counter work again though. It's pretty cool.

BTW - getting rid of that cyclone fencing and hiding the kids toys from my view is my next project!

DeeJay,
Just a little word of encouragement.
Take a little rest, and do some research, before you decide to outsource the stucco.
Yours is all a straight wall, and standard mesh and standoff application.
You can do it .
