Looks nice Kurt ..but I think the form was pulled too quick....I usually wait at least three days. You should be able to mix up some slurry and build up the damaged edge.

Great job on the concrete countertop. Very impressive!

If you feel lost with building your WFO, just pray to St. Stephen who is the patron saint of bricklayers.

Thanks. I didn't get a chance to work on the counter as it rained all afternoon yesterday and it's raining now.

Yeah, I probably should have waited longer, but I was impatient and the countertop mix bag says the forms can be removed in 18 hours.

Moot point now, but those timelines are a general guide. There are always variables that will effect cure time, and waiting longer to pull the form won't damage the concrete like doing it early.


That said, what you have to fix is no big deal. Just make a slurry with portland and an acrylic admix (arcyl 60 or quickcrete) and build it out. Let it cure 24 hours before wetsanding.

I blew a corner out on a watertable piece (a chunk about 3/4") and built it out with a clay-like slurry. It bonded great and sanded out nice...nobody will ever know, except me.

Today, I finished insulating the dome and started bricking the entry. Hope to have chimney flue added tomorrow.

I'm finding out I'm not very good at laying bricks level. Rain slowed me down yesterday.
