Thanks. When I first saw the small photo of the table top, I thought it was a huge burl. Never would have guessed it was cement from that photo : )

Trevor – well done!
We had granite tops put in our kitchen recently. When looking through the slabs at the local granite shop, slabs with as much character as your top were around $50 or more per sq foot installed! I showed your pictures to my wife. Her her first impression also was that they were granite.
Aside from an obvious artistic eye, how did you achieve the ‘granite’ look?

If you look at my kitchen project theres a better explanation but basically its a thin layer of concrete mortar over mdf then I used a spray bottle to color it to look like granite, then its sealed with 2 part epoxy to make it smooth.

Trevor, I think you need to do a pictorial blog for us on how to obtain this kind of top. I read your kitchen explaination and still need help.
Something to think about.

Great work! I am also intrigued on how you did that top. You should share the secret method. ;)

James Lango & Kerux2:
I chased down the technique Trevor described in a comment he made on his attractive Kitchen remodel project.
Just go to You Tube and search for ‘icoat countertop’. You will find video on the process.
There are icoat dealers around the country. You can order the product or have a dealer do the whole thing for you. My son and his wife want to redo their tile counter tops with cement ones. But first they are going to a nearby icoat dealer before committing themselves and me to all that work. If there is any interest here, I’ll post their reaction to the dealer visit.
