    How to Make a Concrete Countertop

    One can also use old weathered grained wood or other materials to give texture to the finish...or even place fresh leaves from trees on the "bottom" before the pour.After releasing the concrete these items will be exposed, when leaves dry they will wipe away.... the negative, anything that is not sooth will hold water spills etc.You can possibly rent a diamond hone..a large circular weight with an offset handle and diamond grit on the bottom. You "spin" this on the surface and it will hone it, cutting through glass and stone and rocks, virtually anything that is used as aggregate. These surfaces will be smooth and polished when finished.
