about

Concrete Countertops re-invents the countertop with a single material: concrete. Although this method of building kitchen and bathroom countertops is currently very popular, not one book on the subject exists - until now.

Enter Fu-Tung Cheng, master of design and construction. Here at last is a complete, start-to-finish book on creating concrete countertops. Cheng takes you step-by-step through the process of making a concrete countertop -- from building the mold and mixing and pouring concrete to curing, grinding, polishing, and installing the countertop.

Youll be inspired by the 350 color photographs that bring this exciting medium to life. And youll discover that the possibilities for creative expression with concrete are endless.

Throughout the book, Cheng offers valuable troubleshooting advice and useful tips on maintaining a concrete countertop.
