We attended the 1-Day Concrete Countertop Essentials Workshop, which is designed to guide you through every step of making a concrete countertop. From the basics of mold making, design considerations, strengthening methods, mixing concrete, decorative aggregates to polishing and sealing. The classes are small and very hands-on. Regardless of your previous experience, you will learn a lot about the material, its advantages and limitations.
We were introduced to many of the products that Cheng Concrete has to offer. Their pro-formulas are specifically designed to remove the guesswork out of concrete mixing and to help you make your projects successful. They also sell many of the tools and materials that make the process simple and accessible to everyone.
Cheng Concrete offers other workshops as well. There is a 1/2-Day Outdoor Living Essential Workshop that will introduce you to building planters, tables, and benches. For more advanced techniques in mold making you can check out the 3-Day Concrete Countertop Training. For the complete list visit the Cheng Concrete website.
