    Default Concrete

    I know that this is not a welding project, but I would just like to show you what I have been working on! I started a business making pre-cast concrete countertops. Here are a few pictures of finished products!

    They look great! How did you learn the process? Is it difficult? I was thinking of doing a concrete counter top for my bbq island.

    I went to The Concrete Countertop Institute in North Carolina. It is an awesome class that will teach you everything from the structural engineering of countertops, to concrete mix formulas, forming, grinding, finishing ecc… after taking the class you will be able to make a superior countertop surface.
    here is a link to check out http://www.concretecountertopinstitute.com/
