I wanted an 1.5 inch over hang around the sides and back, and a twelve inch cantilever in the front. Here is a close up of how I used 2x4's to create this overhang.

Me and my new hoe.

The best hoe I ever had.

And I really got to know this one well!

The first batch of concrete. Time was about 9:50a.m. And spraying down the form before the pour. It's best to start with damp forms to hold moisture in as long as possible.

The bowl we used to measure concrete. The five gallon bucket for sand/gravel.

And the first batch in the form. I mixed 5 gallons of sand/gravel to 1 gallon of concrete and poured in about a half a gallon of water.

I tried to work from the middle to the outside, instead of from one end to the other.

A few pics of the pour progress. Note - the long board was used to screed the concrete. We just laid the board on the outside edges of the form and swept it back and forth in a quick motion while we moved forward.

And my beautiful wife! So supportive.

The bucket was cheap and lightweight, but it sure was heavy when full. So to pour different sections of the slab, I would lay the screed board in the direction I needed to go and slide the bucket on top of it to the desired location.
