Successful precasting requires finish carpentry skills and a fundamental knowledge of concrete.

HAND-PRESSED CONCRETE COUNTERTOPS
Learn to craft concrete countertops using the same hand-pressed methods made popular by the concrete legend Buddy Rhodes. This approach to concrete countertop making requires a craftsman’s hand and a potters eye to produce fantastically variegated finishes. Dry-mixing and pressing Surecrete fiber-reinforced products into a form, while creating voids which later receive contrasting slurry, is a fun way to make light-weight countertops with unlimited color options and finished aesthetics.Learn More
SIMULATED STONE CONCRETE COUNTERTOPS
Use concrete for those countertop projects that require a specific color, texture, or characteristic that natural stone can’t deliver. This how-to guide will walk you through the process of simulating travertine with Surecrete’s fiber-reinforced concrete products, pigments, concrete stain, and even a little baking soda in the mold. With a nominal thickness of 3/4″ these countertops weight approximately 8 pounds/ square foot… That’s half the weight of a granite countertop.Learn More
