Default Re: Polished concrete tables.

I epoxied the corner and put a slurry coat on to fill the holes. I think it came out nice (good enough). We will be the only one who know about the corner.

Here is a picture with the front arch that I just finished. Next comes the flew and the decorative brick to go around the outside.

"Anyway, my point remains that leaving a piece in the form longer is the best preventative,"

I agree completely splatgirl.

Once it is poured and in the form, "the die is cast". Keep it moist and allow it to reach full strength - 7 days plus. Then remove the form and evaluate any touch ups required.
