Granite or engineered stone countertops are nice, but they’re also very expensive. In our Concrete Countertops class, you’ll learn how to make polished and durable countertops that are very affordable and will bring style to your home.
Learn how to avoid the most common problems that occur in Concrete Countertops and how to avoid them. We will mix the material on site so you will see first-hand the consistency and how the material goes together. We will have a countertop pre-poured that you will remove from the mold to see how a countertop looks and feels just a few days after the pour. And we will have diamond stones, grinders and polishers on hand for you to try so you see what tools and materials you would like to use to make your countertop.
You'll learn the physics of concrete and the essentials of steel reinforcement, the essentials of form-building, integral colors, steel reinforcement, pouring, tamping, polishing, finishing and caring for concrete countertops. See the physical characteristics of placing concrete and the tamping, vibrating, troweling, polishing, and finishing that goes into making concrete countertops.
We'll teach you the subtle tricks of the trade to avoid cracking, voids, color variances, and thickness changes. Safety equipment is required (gloves, hearing protection, heavy work shoes, back brace as needed). We will have diamond stones, grinders and polishers on hand for you to try, so you will experience first-hand what tools and materials you will to use to make your countertop.
