We are going to attempt concrete counter tops in our home. I am going to
start with our fireplace hearth and then a vanity top before I move onto the
kitchen. Do you guys have any favorite websites or books that you have
gathered how to info from?
it came out great. don't be afraid to do something special or different. i
embedded glass and polished stones of different types in the tops and edges,
used glass chunks as the concrete aggregate, and did curved edges too.
you'll need a diamond polisher. i got a variable speed alpha unit from
http://www.defusco.com/ as they had the cheapest price on one. sell it on
ebay if you're not going to need it again. do this in the summer and wear
swim trunks; it's incredibly wet and noisy.

oh, and DON'T buy the concrete colors or hole fillers from the writers of
the book. they are really expensive, and are really just non-sanded grout
which you can get at home depot or a concrete place much cheaper.
