"That was my original thought Steve but I was weighing the much more simple mold required for pour in place against the more complex mold to make in shop but still give the appearance of mass. If it is not apparent the finished concrete structure…"

Staining Buddy's White mix

I purchased a few bags of Buddy's white mix intending on using them with his color mix to make counters. I have changed my mind and want to go with stained counters.

As the sheetrock part of the form will never be removed do I have anything to be…See More
