With all the great builds past, present and future, there is a natural evolution to "raise the bar" so to speak. WFO builders on this Forum are innovating, experience and creative, using new or reusing old materials in ways not thought of even a year ago. So with the encouragement of one of mentors during my build (Lburou aka Lee), I decided to build a thread and album that focuses on "concrete counters" whether they be hard troweled or wet polished or who know what someone will think of.
I myself am in the middle of doing a polished concrete counter with crushed glass. There are others at various stages on counter top construction. So as I develop this thread, please let me know of other builders I may have missed so I can incorporate their experience and ideas into this thread. Just the start.
I catergorized concrete counters/decorative pouring into several areas:

Re: Concrete Counters
Thanks for the info. Think you are right and that's why the thread was started. The thread is a work in progress and any input is always welcome. PS, started gutting the remaining junk out of blanket heater to set it up as my proofer.
