Pulled the forms tonight and filed the sharp edge with a mill file, at least that is what Cheng does on his pours. Pretty decent pour one area a little porous where I had to make a made dash to Ace because I was short 1/2 a bag of concrete mix. In general, counters looks okay and thinking polishing with be the acid test. Maybe tomorrow but for sure Weds. Again using Cheng guildlines on unforming and polishing.

Russell -
Looks like the edges on your countertop came out really nicely. I like the color too. Good work.

I hear you on the rain. I'm just crossing my fingers I can get my pour done this week cuz it's coming. I live in seattle after all...

I have read that Green and Blue are the most difficult colors to get right

Stains were really minor, came right off with soap and water.

I am going to be buying the Pompeii 90 oven kit which is the 36" oven. I am doing a corner install. I was hoping you could tell me what my foundation measurements should be.

BB,

Depends on whether you plan on enclosing your build or not. I did not but I am sure there is room for walls. I will look up my dimension tonight. Oh, I just realize you are talking a 36" oven, my dome is 42". I think the FB pompeli plans has a corner layout for 40" dome, that should work for you.

Russell,
your dome looks fantastic. Can't wait to see the finished dome and the surrounding concrete counter.

Hi tall is your chimney now?
