Re: Siding "shouse"


I stained and sealed the concrete. There is a special wax that paint stores carry, it is applied after the sealer, restaurants use it to get their countertops approved for a food surface.

The sealer did a pretty good job so I donít think Iíll wax them.

I poured this in place with the plastic breakaway forms. They were slick, I donít think that I could have built my own forms without leaving any screw holes after removing them.

Iíve got a 2x3 countertop to pour yet, Iíll do it in the shop with melamine forms.

I have two more cabinets to build. I messed up the sizes of two but I was able to repurpose them so it worked out.
