WHY CAST A CONCRETE WORKTOP IN A PLASTIC MOULD?
The plastic mould instantly give you a perfect surface and waterproof edges. It can be used over and over again, and easily adjusted in length. You only need to support the mould around the edges with cheap wood. A concrete worktop costs as much as a stone countertop. The big difference is that you can make a concrete worktop yourself with simple tools – but only if you have the right knowledge about every step. The hardest part is creating a smooth mould, but that problem has been solved for you! Along with the mould you get a step-by-step description with pictures. It will take you some time to read – but it took me several years of tests to be able to write it!
