Concrete Released / Master Bath

August 16, 2011. By lowdesign. 2 comment(s).

After the small countertops were done we started on the big one.  The smaller countertops are 3 feet long and about 2.5 bags of Quikrete each (about 230 lbs in total with the water weight).  This guy took almost 6 bags, and is probably 550 lbs.

No problem for these strapping young men to flip over.  Same process as before to release all of the remaining melamine.

I like the underside texture (this piece was wetter on that surface when we poured than the others).  And here is the raw product.

Nice post. I was checking continuously this blog and I'm impressed! Very useful information particularly the last part :) I care for such info a lot. I was looking for this particular info for a very long time. Thank you and best of luck.

Beautiful top. I like that you leave the concrete's appearance simple. Also, I didn't know that you could pour a layer, screw a board on top, then pour up to a higher level. Will read about before I do it myself, but very interesting stuff and impressive work!
