STEP 3: Setting Concrete Countertops in Place
Once you let the countertops set up for a few week you are ready to remove the forms and put them in place.
We started with the smaller ones first to see how they turned out. I must say I was quite impressed with how smooth and flat they looked once we turned them over.
The second bathroom countertop looked great as well.
OK...now getting this countertop stood up was a chore. It probably weighed over 1000 lbs at 2 1/2ft wide and 12 ft long. We had to put our heads together to figure out how to move this from the table to the counter with only a couple guys.
No problem...like an Egyptian. It's a good idea to put down some construction adhesive on the cabinets before you put the countertop in place since there will be no other fasteners between the countertops and cabinets. With the weight of these things they probably wouldn't move anyways.
